Government attacked over research secrecy [29aug05]

The Mercury: Government attacked over research secrecy [29aug05]

WILDLIFE park operators must be included in the battle against the disease killing Tasmanian devils, the Liberals and Greens said yesterday.

Tasmanian wildlife park operators spoke angrily against the State Government's handling of the disease project in the Sunday Tasmanian yesterday.

Among their concerns, parks were not notified of diseased devils living nearby.

Liberal primary industries and environment spokesman Jeremy Rockliff said he was concerned about a lack of communication between the Government and tourist park operators.

"Tasmanian wildlife parks should be key planks of the overall Tasmanian devil captive population strategy, yet they're not informed about key developments in research and management of the disease," Mr Rockliff said.
