Reader’s Digest


October’s Reader’s Digest has Gordon Ramsay on the cover, but I’m talking about other devils in its detail – my story about Tasmanian devils thriving in an innovative wild sanctuary high in the hills of Barrington Tops, New South Wales.

It’s a great scheme to help save this deeply endangered Aussie species, and in the article Tim Faulkner – TV wildlife show guy and president of the devil-saving Aussie Ark – reveals how it all works.

Pluggedy plug: two features I’ve got coming up in Reader’s Digest in the next few issues:

Tasmanian-devil-1TASMANIAN DEVILS: New South Wales’ Barrington Tops hosts the mainland’s biggest Tasmanian devil breeding program, mainly by letting them run wild in Aussie Ark, a massive feral-free bush sanctuary. Aussie Ark president and TV wildlife personality Tim Faulkner tells me all about it.

ANTI-POACHING DOGS: Soldiers For Wildlife recruits dogs to help protect endangered African animals in Zambia’s most-poached region. Soldiers For Wildlife founder John Garcia discusses the special value of trained dogs in the ongoing desperate struggle to save Africa’s rapidly dwindling wildlife.
