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.

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

“You can bet — I’ve already been asked by a lot of people — I’m going to have to get a test,” Wallace said Friday on “Fox & Friends.”

Wallace, 72, said he never got closer than 10 or 12 feet to the president, who did not approach him after the contentious debate ended. Biden did go over to the moderator briefly, “basically to say, ‘I bet you didn’t know you had signed up for this,’” Wallace told the morning show hosts.

He went on to note that everyone allowed into the hall at Case Western Reserve University had to take a COVID test ―
