The BioPark is gearing up to debut two brand new members of its family. 

Tasmanian Devil brothers, Cola and Schwepps, are part of a global conservation program. 

To combat extinction, scientists have created a Tasmanian Devil ambassador program. 

Young devils raise awareness for their species in zoos across the globe with the hopes of one day releasing a healthy population back into the wild. 

Only four ambassador programs exist in the U.S. and you can see these one-year-olds right here in Albuquerque starting Thursday, Nov. 8.
