It is good news that the Tasmanian Government is investing such a large amount into the captive-breeding facilities and expanding the population. To be effective we need a captive population of 800-1000 individuals. The actual captive population as of April 2018 is 418 (no where near 500 as reported here) and the breeding population was 377 (it will be less by now).
