#022 Tasmanian Devils With John Hamilton

🚐  Welcome back guys! 🙏🏽 Thanks for your patience as I hit pause on the show while I was off the road and out of reception exploring the Tasmanian wilderness hiking the Three Capes Track and the Overland Track. 🍃🍃🍃 Today’s episode has been longly awaited, meet the incredibly interesting John Hamilton! I cannot go to Tasmania and not learn and discuss the largest carnivorous marsupial the Tasmanian Devil 😈 who is only found in the wild here in Tasmania. To chat about the Devil John is just the person for this! He has a broad education and has been involved in the conservation of Tassie Devils for >40 years and is the owner of the Tassie Devil Unzoo. 🎤 Our conversation traverses John’s work, the story of the Tassie Devil’s conservation, the concept of the Unzoo and much more. Listen in!
