The Orphan rehabilitation receives a patient or two around spring time every year and is a role we cherish, there is nothing quite like being a mother to a joey devil and seeing them develop to maturity either within captivity or reintroduced back into the wild.
The facility is licensed under the government wildlife carers program and staff are trained and experienced in the hand rearing of the species. A rehabilitation program has also been implemented for the purpose of hand rearing baby orphaned devils and the rehabilitation of injured devils for release back into the wild. This aspect of the program is increasingly important as every devil is vital in the fight to save the species.
