Timmy and Tammy are twin Tasmanian Devil joeys born as part of the bumper breeding season for conservation charity Aussie Ark.
Timmy & Tammy were named after the iconic Aussie biscuits, Tim Tams, by Aussie Ark supporters. They are just six months old and have already stolen the hearts of all the Aussie Ark keepers.
“Tasmanian devils are one of the most iconic native species we have and looking at Timmy and Tammy you can see why they are so loved,” Aussie Ark curator Liz Vella said.
“We’ve lost 90% of this species in the wild and they’re facing a bleak future, but through our Aussie Ark breeding program we’re working towards creating a long-term future for this species, and Timmy and Tammy are a big part of that.”
Aussie Ark celebrated its most successful breeding season ever this year, with 69 Tasmanian devil joeys.
Timmy and Tammy, along with all the others will call Aussie Ark home and live in a protected sanctuary in the Barrington Tops of NSW.
The devils at Aussie Ark are protected from the threat of the deadly facial tumour disease, which has nearly wiped out the wild population.
Aussie Ark relies solely on the community to continue its work and ensure a future for threatened native species.
“We face a world without our unique Aussie animals if we don’t act now so we’re asking all Aussies to dig deep and help us ensure a future for our wildlife.”
“You can adopt one of our Devils and for just the price of a cup of coffee a week, help ensure their long-term survival.”
Adoptions start from as little as $25 a month and each adoptee will receive an adoption pack. They make great gifts for loved ones as well.
