Sprout, Thyme and Mustard from the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program (STDP) are now exploring their new purpose built home at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium​ in Ohio, USA.

The three Tasmanian devils are the latest additions to the STDP’s Tasmanian Devil Ambassador Program which is designed to place suitable Tasmanian devils into world-class zoos as ambassadors for the species.

These devils play an important conservation role in raising awareness of the plight of the species on the world stage and only prominent zoos with a proven commitment to conservation and are selected to participate in this program.

The STDP welcomes the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium to the Ambassador Program and thanks them for their continued support and contribution to the conservation efforts in Tasmania for this endangered species.

Ambassador devils are now featured in zoos in the USA, New Zealand, Europe and Japan.
