In May 2006 the Tasmanian devil was listed as a vulnerable species under the Commonwealth EPBC Act.
Forestry Tasmania is required to have operational procedures in place to protect and manage listed threatened species on forestry managed land as part of the Tasmanian RFA.
The unexplained inertia regarding placing free-range populations on any islands or the mainland has many people suspicious of commercial motives. However, the focus on developing an insurance population and failure to formally adopt the Plan under the EPBC Act is currently helping odious proposals such as open cut mining in the Tarkine to escape full and proper scrutiny under the terms of Section 139 of the EPBC Act. One would expect that such a globally recognised endangered species would have an approved Recovery Plan considering the generous funding available and the dedicated Save the Tasmanan Devil Program staff.

Yet these operational procedures do not formally exist and therefore no procedures are in place to formally protect Tasmanian devil dens and habitat anywhere in Tasmania. One problem with a Devil recovery program is that the rarer they are the more they are worth on the open market. Fencing off free range sized habitat on the Tassie mainland would be a perilous strategy on its own, but the recent announcement by Bruce Englefield, (who was previously reported as selling government-owned devils to mainland wildlife parks, not in the recovery program for $5000 apiece, of just such a venture in two enclaves) would understandably be disturbing to people such as Godfrey, #1. The logic behind the recovery strategy is to act before it is too late, even though our knowledge of the disease and its impacts is incomplete (McCallum and Jones 2006).
The report outlines the legislative context for the community, both federally and across the three states of its distribution, as well as interactions with existing plans, policies and programs.

Such delays, dithering and incompetence are clear its just there is so much of it people are worn down from the inertia that holds the perpetrators in place.
The results of the consultation informed the investigation of potential issues for recovery throughout the range of the ecological community.In order to focus and prioritise actions for the recovery plan, the major threats to the ecological community were delineated and ranked, and recommendations for its definition, mapping and management were provided.
