Victor Vescovo meets the Tassie devil, and a snuggle of irresistible baby bandicoots.

World-record breaking deep-sea explorer, and Australian Geographic Society’s 2019 Gala Awards special guest, Victor Vescovo, took to the sky on Saturday, 2 November 2019, and headed north to Barrington Tops to visit Aussie Ark and meet some very special little Australians.

“It was an extraordinary privilege to be able to hold a Tasmania devil!” Victor says. “It’s inspiring to see the work of Tim and his team at Aussie Ark – supported by Australian Geographic – to preserve native species.”
