Events at the park
At night, feeding tours operate daily at 5:30 pm. Devils are generally
more active at night and you will see them in their activities using
environmentally sensitive lighting.
The sanctuary operates a captive breeding program to maintain a possible
captive population in order to release and reintroduce them to the wild
at a later stage. The breeding program has so far been successful with
five devils raised in the first breeding season and eleven young raised
in the second breeding season. Some of these animals will be released to
the wild while others will be sent to other zoos and sanctuaries to help
in breeding programs. There is also a rehabilitation program that has
been running to rear orphaned baby devils and rehabilitate the injured
animals to release them back to the wild.
