Marvel actor Chris Hemsworth joined conservationists at Aussie Ark for a historic moment in his homeland of Australia, where they reintroduced the Tasmanian devil to the mainland for the first time in an estimated 3,000 years.

Leave it to Thor to help bring back Tasmanian devils to Australia. 

Hemsworth and his wife and actress Elsa Pataky helped release a group of 11 Tasmanian devils into a 1,000-acre wildlife sanctuary at Barrington Tops National Park in New South Wales on Sept. 10, as part of a crucial effort to restore the endangered species to its former habitat.

After 3,000 Years Away, Tasmanian Devils Return to Australia With Help From Chris Hemsworth

Thor is taking a break from saving humans with the Avengers to turn his attention to a slightly smaller animal.

Chris Hemsworth and his wife, fellow actor Elsa Pataky, recently helped conservationists release 11 Tasmanian devils into a nearly 1000-acre wildlife sanctuary in mainland Australia. The last time a Tasmanian devil set its paw on the soil of Australia’s mainland was over 3,000 years ago, according to a release from Global Wildlife Conservation.

The Australian actor and conservationists released these animals in an effort to “rewild” Australia — the country with the world’s worst mammal extinction rate. Aussie Ark, in partnership with Global Wildlife Conservation and WildArk, started this project over 10 years ago and is proud to finally have a former animal resident back on Australian soil.

“In 100 years, we are going to be looking back at this day as the day that set in motion the ecological

Texas DC Chris Ash never saw Longhorns’ poor tackling performance against Texas Tech coming

Texas offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich and defensive coordinator Chris Ash spoke with the media Wednesday. Here are five takeaways from what they said.

‘I never would’ve seen that coming’

The Texas defense’s tackling performance last Saturday left Chris Ash wondering what went wrong.

Ash said that there were too many missed tackles for him to count, and that based on the way the team tackled in training camp and in preseason scrimmages, there was no indication that this would be an issue.

“I never would’ve seen that coming, to be honest with you,” Ash said. “I think it was four or five scrimmage opportunities in training camp, and then the way we tackled in Game 1, I didn’t see that coming.”

Ash said that he wasn’t going to make any excuses for a performance like that one, but that missing out on the offseason simply gave less reps to a
