Save the Tasmanian Devil Program

The Save the Tasmanian Devil Program (STDP) is the official response to the threat of extinction of the Tasmanian devil due to Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD).

The vision for the program is for an enduring and ecologically functional population of Tasmanian devils in the wild in Tasmania.


The STDP, an initiative of the Australian and Tasmanian governments, was established in 2003 following a national workshop of specialists on the decline of the Tasmanian devil due to DFTD. ​
