The Search for Mainland Devils
On the basis of the historical evidence for mainland devils at various points in recent history, the authors of this site have launched a project to search for evidence of devils in the wild on the mainland today.
A number of avenues of enquiry are being pursued.
- The historical evidence for mainland devils is being reviewed for the opportunity to pursue additional lines of enquiry,
- Should new (previously unpublished) evidence for mainland devils come to light, this will be similarly investigated,
- Automated camera systems are being deployed in strategic locations in Victoria; this aspect of the project should yield useful biodiversity data even if no devil data is acquired.
- Additional devil sampling techniques are being researched and may be employed.
Occassional progress reports and media releases are published under the heading "Announcements" on the homepage.
