Here are the stories of Dasy, Max and Jock, …

Dasy the baby quoll was photographed when he was 3 month old. When he was found his weight was only 34 grams. He was found in the middle of a bitumen road but why he was there is a mystery. Small marsupials hang on very tightly inside their mother’s pouch, so for him to have been dislodged enough to fall out, his mother must have suffered a major trauma such as being clipped by a car or attacked by a dog.

Jock the Tasmanian Devil was photographed when he was 4 months old. Jock and his tiny sister were rescued by Bonorong after their mother was euthanized because she was infected by the Devil Facial Tumor Disease (DFTD). DFTD is a fatal condition in Tasmanian devils, characterised by cancers around the mouth and head. The cause of DFTD is unknown and Tasmanian Devils are now on the verge of extinction with around 85% of Tasmanian Devils are gone from the wild

Max the baby wombat was photographed when he was 6 month old. Max was found inside his dead mother’s pouch after she had been killed by a car on a Tasmanian road. A wildlife rescuer found her body and checked her pouch to find Max still alive. He was approx. 4 months old and the size of a grapefruit. When he reaches 2 years of age, and weighs around 20 kilos, he will be released back into the wild.
