A little story about Tasmanian devils

When I made my trip to Tasmania, I had to learn more about the Tasmanian devils, naturally. The thing is, they are now an endangered species. They once used to roam Australia but now they are only confined to the island of Tasmania. They were not well liked for centuries. In the 1800’s many people falsely believed that Tasmanian devils were responsible for killing livestock so they took efforts into eradicating them. The effort was almost successful. It wasn’t until 1940 that the Australian government declared the devils a protected pieces. Thankfully, their numbers have grown since.
