Seeing a huge increase in the number of Tasmanian devils being affected by a facial tumor, Bruce Englefield, a former wildlife park owner has proposed a plan to the government that healthy devils should at an immediate basis be fenced off, a report has revealed recently.
"I'm an impatient person and as far as I'm concerned we've got the money we can build the fence tomorrow”, he said as he put forth his proposal amid concerns that these devils would also get infected in case they are not put in a safe zone.
As per the findings, he has been thinking of keeping at least 150 marsupials in the Freycinet National Park. Not only has he wanted hedge in the Freycinet Peninsula, but in the state's north-west, where there is one more site.
Estimates are that Freycinet’s fence would go some two kilometers in length with almost $200,000 cost or more. It is being said that cookbook sales has contributed $130,000 of the same already.
Where Mr. Englefield believes that implementation of his plan would save more or less 1,200 disease-free devils. Brian Wightman, the Environment Minister, has affirmed that a consultation is needed with parks and wildlife experts as well as scientists to approve the same.
