Tasmania: Sanctuary or Trap (Outfoxing Tasmania)
The island of Tasmania is a natural sanctuary for the plants and animals that migrated down the land bridge connecting it to the rest of Australia, which submerged 13,000 years ago. With no predatory carnivores on the island, Tasmania is now the only place in Australia where some species of marsupials, reptiles, amphibians and birds are still found. Yet the rogue introduction of foxes may turn this island sanctuary into a trap. What would it cost in environmental terms if foxes were to become established and what natural defences can be mobilised against them? Narrated by Richard Morecroft
