Ingham’s World 27th November-The devil is fighting its enemy!

Climate change seems good for one of our creatures;crickets.  Three species new to Britain have arrived as they moved north through Europe. They include the long-winged conehead and the Rosell’s bush cricket.  There is also going to be reintroduction progress for the wart-biter cricket.

The size of a small dog, the Tasmanian devil, a snarling predatory marsupial, has been given a helping hand against a killer disease.  Since 1996, numbers have been sent plummeting by 96 percent because of a deadly cancer.  But Sidney’s Devil Ark has bred healthy stock and has released at least 40 into a decease-free area of bush in Tasmania.
