Diving with Aliens

Science fiction buffs have come up with many strange depictions of alien life, but nothing to rival a creature with a beak like a parrot, no bones in its body, and that swallows its food through the hole in the centre of its doughnut-shaped brain. It has three hearts, blue blood, skin that can change colours like a kaleidoscope, and eight arms growing out of its lips. It`s powered by jet propulsion and can transform its body shape to mimic other life forms. This isn’t science fiction – it’s alive and well in our ocean… and it’s known as a cephalopod.

Devil Island – Mission Maria Island

In a real-life Madagascar, fifteen mollycoddled Tasmanian devils are hauled from the safety and protection of their Australian animal sanctuaries and cast away like convicts on a remote island to fend for themselves. Little do the lively creatures realize, the Tasmanian devil has fallen prey to a highly contagious cancer that has wiped out 80% of the population. The audacious plan to save them from extinction is to create an “insurance” population on an island off the coast of Tasmania. It’s a risky experiment, as the hand-reared individuals have never hunted for themselves, found shelter or faced a predator in their pampered little lives. Expect mayhem and high jinks as we follow the fortunes of the squad of little devils on this make-or-break trial to save their species – and themselves – on DEVIL ISLAND.
