THE FACTS:

Only in Tasmania, there have been over 500,000 native animal road kills every year.

Virtual fences have been proven to half this rate!!!

OUR GOAL:

The Tasmanian devils are nearing extinction and roadkill is making this situation worse. Installing virtual fences in areas where devils and other native Australian/Tasmanian animals are more common will solve this problem and let us focus on more important aspects of making sure our wildlife is still around. 

WHAT ARE VIRTUAL FENCES?:

Virtual fence devices are an active electronic protection system that warns animals that a vehicle is on the road. The devices are activated by approaching headlights, which cause them to emit sound and light stimuli and alert animals of oncoming traffic.

ABOUT TASMANIAN DEVILS (Sarcophilus harrisii):

The Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) is a carnivorous marsupial of the family Dasyuridae. It was once native to mainland Australia and is now found in the wild only on the island state of Tasmania, including tiny east-coast Maria Island where there is a conservation project with disease-free animals. Devils were hunted and became endangered in Tasmania because they were seen as a threat to livestock and animals that humans hunted for fur. In 1941, the devils, which were originally seen as implacably vicious, became officially protected. Since then, scientists have contended that earlier concerns that the devils were the most significant threat to livestock were overestimated and misplaced.
