    They still exist, too many people have seen them and sooner or later someone will have conclusive evidence to support this!

    last year when i visted my father we went out into the bush an we found a half eaten carcuss that looked like a really big dog but it had stripes on its back an my father is a animal researcher and he said it was postivilty a tasmanian tiger an we would have got a photo but we did not have any electronics with us and it was to far for us to carry it, but it was awsome .

    I just knew this animal existed... It's fascinating how he may not be extinct and to think that somewhere there's a group of Tasmanian Tigers living in peace far from humanity (or, at least, well hidden).
    I also read about some projects about his clonation... i know this voices are often fantasies, but this gave me hope to see in a way or in another this animal once again :)

    Unfortunatly, human is the worst animal on earth, hope there's still some tasmanian tigers on tasminian island ! We should think about the way we are instead of thinking about who or what animal should stay alive !!! I really want to go on tasmanian island and find one, but if i see one, i will say nothing, i will just be in peace !!

    I just watched a short show on the "Stranger than Nature" series....it was about the Tasmanian Tiger. So beautiful...I can, but CAN'T believe the ignorance of humans. They had footage of the last live Tiger penned up and pacing circa '37-'38. I was left with a hope that perhaps there is a secret pack somewhere in the boggs of Tasmania. The show was questioning why there were beheaded kangaroo corpses. I certainly hope they are there and will become an ACTIVELY protected species. Also, I worry about the Tasmanian Devils face tumors and am wondering how the research on that is going. God bless all the earth beautiful creatures.

    I Hope some are still alive i really do they seem like such nice animals and people killed them all because they were scared just because someone got scared of something they should not have killed it into extinction never to come back but people have gotten sightings really i do not blame them for staying secret they know what happened so many years ago and they might stay a mystery or if there are some they might come back

    i hope i do get to see a color one though :)

    So sad , after watching the Hunter ..... had to do my own research , was very sad about the one last survivor and how when she died they tossed her like garbage . Why can't anyone take the time to dedicate a memorial of some kind in memory of the last surving Tansmania Tiger that had lived at that zoo ? So sad ...........

    It looks like the movie "The Hunter" has really brought the issue to the forefront.
    I had never heard of the Tasmamian Tiger and began my own research wich has let me to your page.
    The governments obvious knowledge of the existence of the Tiger but blatant refusal to acknowledge it makes it even more intriguing.

    I am not a kook or conspiracy theorist but I truly believe that this beautiful creature may lay deep in the Tasmanian forests.

    I hope all your work and effort comes to fruition and yet..... The fact that nobody is out persuing this creature may be for the best.

    Good luck!!!!

    The Island of Tasmania is an absolute gem of natural beauty and still maintains some of the last few great bastions of the true wild. Where there are people there will most likely be genuine sightings if even only a handful exist in fading habitats like the Mt Arthur or Mt Barrow Reserves. If the Tiger was wiped from these parts of the Island what of the great Southwest region? with few tracks and even fewer roads. You could hide an army of 100,000 in there and not be found for decades. Protect what we still have and Keep Tasmania Wild and Free from greedy bureaucrats.

    Just watched "The Hunter" and the story broke my heart ... I pray that this beautiful animal has found a way to survive and how it saddens me deeply to think of all the other animals that have gone extinct due to Man's greed. Thank You with all my heart for caring for this incredible animal.

    In the last year two years I have become overwhelmingly aware of the significance and delicacy of life on earth. I am a supporter of human progress but not at the expense of the beauty and life of nature and its animals. It is our responsibility to coexist, maintain, and support all life. The Earth is our most valuable asset, it is our responsibility to care for it and as we are commanded, be good stewards. The extension and mismanagement of any animal especially one as unique as Thylacine stems from nothing more than human greed and disregard for life. IMOP with modern technology and science, permanently damaging natural habitats and extinction of life is inexcusable, unnecessary, and short sighted. Everything people need has all ready been provided by nature and we destroy it. For Thylacine's sake I hope they are still alive and continue to elude us until we either reach a higher consciousness or are prepared to uphold our responsibility.

    Hi Joan and Buck!
    Ever since I was a kid,I've been fascinated by the possibility of so-called extinct animals perhaps surviving in remote areas. The Thylacine has always been my favorite. It still breaks my heart to watch the Hobart Zoo footage. To think that when that beautiful girl died,they just tossed her away like garbage makes me cry. Especially after seeing her jump up at the fence,obviously looking for attention.
    I've read enough and seen enough film footage to convince me that there is hope that this wonderful animal survives. Kudos to you for carrying on with this! I hope their habitat can be saved and further crime against nature prevented.

    Hi Joan & Buck

    I just saw the movie The Hunter,and was never aware of

    this problem concerning this wonderful animal.Also I

    see by this film and your articles that the distruction

    of old growth forest is an on going thing.How tragic

    this to is.I can't believe a modern enlightened country

    like Australia could let this happen.I have also read

    some time ago that the Tasmanian Devil is in serious

    trouble having tumers appear on their faces. Whats up

    down there. In the movie Uncle Jack makes slight

    mention of this in asking the hunter if the Devils he

    saw were healthy.

    All the best to you guys down there

    I look forward to seeing what progress you are making

    with these issues. "Good luck"

    I hope that somewhere deep in the Tasmania forest a small group of Thylacine stills alive, the man made a great mistake by ending this great epecies.Extinct an animal is a huge mistake because it is impossible to restore it's kind, and if it is restored it will not be natural.
    That is why I put my heart on believing that this incredible animal stills alive, even if it is in a small group.
    Good luck mantaining this website on, he is very important to people who stills believes in the Thylacine, thanks.

    Thank you for establishing and maintaining this website. I watched a movie on Netflix called "The Hunter" and it made me curious. I found your website via a Bing search. Tasmania has always been a place of wonder and mystery to me...more of a fantasy perhaps. I envisioned it as one of the last bastions of true wilderness on the planet. One question on the 1953 sighting...are striped hyenas living in Tasmania? I thought they were an African/Asian species? Why would the officials tell the sighter/trapper to say it was a hyena? In any case, keep up the good work! As a modern society, we need resources, including wood, and people need a way to make a liveliehood but your recommendations seem modest and appropriate given the evidence you present. Good luck and best wishes that one day they will be enact your recommendations.

    I've heard all this stuff about viable populations needed to ensure a species survival because to much inbreeding with similar DNA's leads to sick offspring that don't survive long and aren't able to reproduce. But in Tasmania even when they were at their most plentyful, Thylacines couldn't have numbered more than 10,000 at the very most. This indicates to me that Thylacines would be able to cope with a low gene pool cause at its height it wasn't that high anyway!

    I heard something a while back which says that Australias population of foxes which now numbers in ther millions, originate from about 20 individuals released in Australia sometime in the late 19th/early 20th century. Foxes obviously aren't effected by the supposed low gene pool theory!

    I've studyed all the post 1936 thylacine existance evidence and have come to the conclusion that is very possible that small remnant populations could still exist in Tasmania, the Aussie mainland and PNG.

    While many thylacine sightings are likely mangy or injured dogs/dingos or foxes, wishful thinking where ones mind sees something they want to see or people telling lies, a % of the sightings could very likely be the genuine thing!

    I also get the impression that many people in those parts know more about the continued existance than they let on and this would include government officials.

    The wilderness land mass of Tasmania and Australia where humans rarely go is still huge and its more than possible that a creature that even back in the day when their existance was officially acknowledged, were very elusive and rarely seen, could still exist in numbers lower than a thousand!

    Humans don't know everything and its widely acknowledged by experts that theirs still much about the natural world we don't know about!

    It'd be really wonderful if the thylacine was still alive. But as someone else pointed out, there would need to be a viable population to ensure any survival long term. Although it's an interesting idea to look at Tassie Tiger DNA sequences, "cloning thylacines" may not be the best way to spend research dollars (AU, or anyone's). I think we need to realize that we humans screwed up badly, so much so that we lost the thylacine. It's unconscionable, but we really lost out there. So, what to do now: save ecosystems as much as we can, so that endangered animals have a chance. Try to make sure the Tazzy Devil doesn't go extinct, keep the marsupial population that you have in AU as best you can, by maintaining parkways w/o a minimum of roads so that 'roos don't get hit by cars. My guess is that Steve Erwin would've said much the same (and did, I think).

    I was playing 20 questions one day and it guessed Tasmanian Tiger and of course I had no idea what that was so I Googled it and then i was so interested in it I couldnt stop thinking bout that tiger I told everyone bout it my mom, dad, boyfriend I was just crazy bout it and cant stand to not know nothing bout it, its so beautiful. The next day I watched a movie of mine an had a preveiw of the new movie "The Hunter" it was so weird, finally one day I went to wal mart an found that movie an watched it that night its a really good movie an Im still wanting to know more bout this tiger, I love it!

    If the Thylacine still exists (which I think is likely considering all the sightings and the Australian mainland and Tasmania has a lot of wilderness areas where humans rarely venture!)then it would do in small localised fragmented populations and would probably number less than 1000.

    Hopefully one day my optimism on the current status of the Thylacine will be proved!

    It seems improbable that it still exists, even if it existed past the official extinction date the problem of functional extinction comes into to play.

    A viable population would have to number in the low 100s to ensure the species would not suffer the genetic issues surrounding low population numbers

    I was in Tasmania two weeks ago and I went to Mole Creek where Tigers formerly roamed. I spoke to two old blokes at the Pub who said they had not been around Mole Creek since the 1920's. One said his grandfather had seen them but there were not many around even then. I spoke to a respected businessman in Launceston who told me he saw two at once in 1972, in a remote area in northern Tasmania at night in the car lights. A lot of Tasmanians are hesitant to elaborate on their sightings or even give an indication where it took place. This indicates to me that they are protecting them. When you see the Tasmanian wilderness it is hard to claim absolutely that the Tiger is extinct, I don't think they are.

    I'm doing a research paper on the Tasmanian tiger for a wildlife biology class. That people put bounties on these beautiful animals for no good reason is a tragedy. I chose the tazzy tiger because I saw a rerun of the Crocodile Hunter where he was investigating current sightings. If he thought they might still exist, then so do I. Hopefully, I can put my paper in the school library computers for other students to read and learn about this fascinating creature! (Also crossing my fingers for a top grade!) Thanks for your neat website.

    Doing a research project on this beast.. Its pretty cool. I hope that the slim sightings are true, because it definently shouldn't have been exticnt as soon as it was, livestock or not. Humans need to think of future consequences before purposely taking out a species from an environment.

    With all the technology....Clone them....One of the most amazingly rare and unique creatures on earth.Geneticly...it is possible that MAYBE a tiny amount exist and intelligenlty learn fast of their fellow species being hunted. Hiding away even more secretly...comming out less frequent and knowing the less inhabited palces by campers...tourists...people in general. I believe that´s what humans have done in the past too...they resorted to building under ground and in caves and dug tunnels in through mountains to servive.It is instinct to chsmge the way of living...they way of hunting and preservation requires new changes...They are intelligent enough to instictivly redevelope in order to keep alive.I know I would do that and humans have done this and so have other species of creatures on this Earth.I do not under estimate the power and adaption of of any living creature.I truely hope if they are still around hiding...that they stay protected and I just love the Tasmanian Tiger.

    Just wanted to say i went camping in the grampions national park on January 12-15 and seen a thylacine i got out my car and took 12 photos with my iphone about 6 of which are good. the department of sustainability and environment have been debating about my photos this has been going on for a while
    they have tried to say its a red mangy fox with stripes how ever they cant provide photos of this. this creature definatly exists on the mainland

    I don't think they can still exist. They were very rare when the first human settlers came to Tasmania, so you can imagine what happened when everyone started hunting them and clearing the habitat....Yeah, they all went extinct, no doubt.

    I do however think that the one that died in Hobart Zoo wasn't the last one, and atleast 1 of the thousands of sightings are true atleast. Right now I think the Tasmanian Woods are empty.
    No Thylacines in there, so I would like us to aim for cloning the animal, renew it's population this way. We made it extinct, the world's most unique and beautiful animal in my opinion, we owe it's ancient population to bring it back to life.

    I do belive they r out there ... In fact I no they r out there u just don't no cuz they r shy and smart to stay away from us cuz they no what we will do they don't have to be located were they r found maby there smart enough to move to a different place thinking we won't fine them there also u can be in the middle of no were and one cM ne whatching u but u don't. No it cuz it sneaky

    I have noticed they can stand on back feet and they walk flat foot sometimes and the have a wired point T the end f there toes they have longer legs in the back they r a lot like kangaroos.

    I do believe there out there and if they r there's probley very few.
    And I would love to c one and help them survive if they r out there

    BTW I saw the movie the hunter and he killed the tass tiger cuz they ppl who hired him to fined it wanted this toxin in it to make something but the guy killed it so they can use it for anything just wanted to say that so ppl like new it wasn't for bad it was kinda to help so they didn't just use the toxin in the tass tiger... I do hope they will grow there population

    I think they are best left alone, i think ppl my know of them but dont want ppl flocking there to see them or go there with guns. i dont know how anyone could shoot a rare animal like this or a rare lynxx/ panther. that is why if i knew where they were i would not tell a soul and just admire them in their own environment without being caged up or being hunted.

    Tigers are one of the most beautiful animals in the wild and its a dam shame that idiots are usin there fur for coats it breaks my heart to see people hunting tigers to a point they cant even bread :( some people need to grow up and stop havin a mid lfie crisis all it is want to feel young :)

    hi,i have just happened upon your site, after watching a film called the hunter about the last remaining tiger, i was heartbroken at the end of it and once again reminded of mankinds selfish and destructive nature under the corporate
    governance we are all under these days in a world with little empathy, i have never researched the tiger your site is the first tiny bit i have done, the magnificence of nature and all gods creatures is something close too my heart, and i am not suprised your efforts locally have been stonewalled, all i can say is keep up the good work, good luck too the tigers if they are still out there its good too know people can still be humane and give a damn.

    Its a dam shame these creatures were wiped out. Wheather they were going to go anyway naturally, or by us, i keep thinking if only we had the scientific knowlege we have today ! roumor has it that they are trying to bring it back from preserved specimans over 100 years old. will they succeed, who knows. Is it proper, maybe it is and maybe its not. And will it be the same as its origional form. Questions. questions. We'll just have to wait and see. meanwhile we should learn from this mistake and never make it again.

    Roughly 20 years ago, when I lived in country victoria, (Golden Plains Shire), I saw what I believe was a tasmanian tiger. In the 15 years that I lived in the area, that was my only sighting. I lived on a 40 acre property surrounded by mostly larger farms on a dead end dirt road. I saw it standing in a paddock approx 30 metres away, then it walked towards the creek that runs through our property, it never saw me. From memory, this animal only had about three stripes, unlike the pictures I have seen. In every other way it resembled a tasmanian tiger. Its gait was unlike a domestic dog. Was it a tasmanian tiger? I can't say for sure but I am 90% sure it was.

    As a lover of the Tasmanian Tiger, I pray each new year holds news that they still exist. In my heart, I know they must be still out there and wait for the day the authorities are proved wrong. My cousin is currently on a month long trek through the Tassie bush, the uninhabited part, so I await for his return to let me know what he found, if anyone can find them, he can...

    i am researching the tasmanian tiger for a grade 10 social project. personally i hope they arent extinct and are indeed hiding in small groups. they are beautiful creatures and the extinction of any animal not solely from a natural cause it sad. its terrible to think of what humans have done to the planet, hopefully my generation will learn to do better. <3

    Tasmanian Devils were reported to have been predators of young Thylacines left alone while their parents went out hunting.

    Really hope that Thylacines still exist somewhere in either mainland Aussie, PNE or Tasmania or quite possibly all 3?

    The fact that indigienous Aboringines with no knowledge of the modern world were discovered in mainland Australia as late as 1984 and some people believe theres more in the outback undiscovered to this day makes you realise how isolated some parts of Australia and indeed Tasmania still are. This gives hope that small remnant thylacine populations are in existance deep in the wilderness?

    While I'm sure many of the sightings are a case of mistaken identity or cranks looking for attention, theres been so many of them that even just a few must be genuine sightings?

    Given the fact that Thylacines definately existed in 1936 and I'm sure theres human beings around today who know for they still exist gives us hope that the continued existance of the species can be offically confirmed one day and conservation measures are introduced to help increase the population!

    look the Tigers Are in Tasmania there are heaps of reliable sightings,especialy from the old folk who have lived in the more remote areas of Tasmania.One day there WILL be conclusive prove of the existance of the tigers,until that happens..everyone needs to accept the fact that the Tigers ARE there END OF STORY!!

    Traps and cameras have been used for years in order to try and catch a Tassie tiger but none have ever worked, officially of course!

    Its already been officially proven that Tassie Tigers very likely existed in the 1960's some 30 years after they were meant to have been wiped out. This makes its possible the species still exists todays although probably in very low remnant isolated populations.

    As for the government, its likely they know more than they let on and maybe they take the stance that if the species can survive this long without official recognition then maybe their better of staying like that?

    Tasmania has over 30 something % of its land protected from development so theres plenty of space where populations of Tassie Tigers could exist so logging wouldn't be a problem!

    While Tassie Tigers are offically extinct is it possible that in isolated communites of which I believe theres many in Tasmania, the known existance of them is no big deal but they don't go on about it cause they don't want all the worldwide exposure?

    I live in a rural area in East Anglia in the UK wheres theirs lots and lots of foxes which farmers say are a problem. But its very rare to see a fox in rural areas and many people have never seen one. Indeed I've only seen wild foxes in my areas a few times in my life and I'm 36 years old and explore wild life areas more than most. Also theirs aparently plenty of feral cats and I saw a load a whileback though its rare you will see them. Badgers are becoming more abundant in my area but I've never seen one alive in the wild. Big cats are also occasional reported. Normally farmers and gamekeeprs only get to see this sort of wildlife and shoot them and bury the carcuss before anyone gets to know about them. Allegedly a gamekeeper shot a Lynnx in East Anglia in the 1970s/1980's, a species that was meant to be extinct in the UK for thousands of years. Is it possible in Tasmania that Tasmanian Tigers have a similar scanario to rarely seen animals in East Anglia?

    This ongoing story fascinates me and all I know being someone looking from afar whos never been to Tasmania is that I think its possible they could still exist, the officially last known one which died in 1936 probably wasn't the last one, many previously thought extinct species have been rediscovered, humans particularly governments and Co don't know everything and locals sometimes know stuff higher authorites don't!

    Hello ,
    My family and l especially my son are Fascinated with the Tasmanian Tiger, last year we hire a motor home and drove around Tasmania for 14 days went to place that look like humans didn't even walk there.I don't believe that the tiger could be totally wipe out, yes very low in numbers but not gone . If the government doesn’t want to Believe that they could be alive its for a reason, they want the land to log it and it all sound political to me, has the zoo done any research? what about setting inhumane traps to some? or even setting up cameras ? it can be done but there must be a reason why the don't want to it . ( that's my two cents worth )

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    1. I am a retired Colonel of Indian army, presently in Australia on a tourist Visa and staying with my son, Akash Srichandan, who is a citizen of Australia.

    2. On 21 Oct 2011, I along with my family was driving down from Sydney to Melbourne. At about 9.30 PM (Sydney time), on Hume Highway, while coming to Melbourne, approximately 40 to 50 KM short of Melbourne, we saw an animal crossing the Hume Highway from left to right, at about 50 to 60 yards in front of us. Initially I thought it to be a big stray dog commonly found in India. But my son said that, there are no stray dogs in Australia. The animal was slowly galloping. It had an abnormally elongated mouth. The tail was pretty thick at the starting then tapering down. I could see the vertical black stripes to the hind portion of the animal probably because the car was being driven on low beam. As an animal lover, I knew little bit about the Tasmanian tiger. After reaching home we searched Google as to what we had seen. And I do not have any ambiguity in mind that it was a Tasmanian tiger.

    3. I thought the information might be of some use to you and that is why I am mailing it to you.

    Thanks and Regards.

    I am absolutely fascinated by the creatures when you think about it since I am from New Zealand the Kakapo was believed extinct and they found it , I reckon they are still very much alive and I hope I will be the one to find it , these creatures were amazing I also strongly believe that alot of things believed extinct aren't like the haast eagle or the giant ripper of america they are both very much alive I believe this because when I was tracking in the cascades I saw a huge eagle like shadow I never told a living sole about it for fear they would try and catch it I hope the tasmanian tiger is still alive it would be amazing to see it I just hope they don;t make it miserable by keeping it cooped up in a cage :( that would make me so mad , let me know if you find even a shread of evidence I will be over there in a heart beat

    they are still alive... in 2001 on a two day hiking and fishing trip to Black Bluff/Paddys lake my dad and i saw a male Tiger feasting on a Wallaby beside Paddys Lake.. it was about the size of Kelpie. our presence startelled it and it took off towards the eastern side of the lake.
    i am looking forward to my next trip to the central highlands this autumn. I'll hopefully see it again and get some photos this time..

    William my Ex has a friend who lives on the West South coast of Tasmania and he agrees. Many people he knows have seen them, but they keep quite about it.They are there,just because an animal has the common sense to avoid humans does not mean they are extinct. They are still finding creatures that they have never seen before and creatures they thought were extinct,man does not know every thing.

    Have no fear people the tigers are about .They are in at least two or three areas in the state.Most people who site these creatures do not come foward and report there stories.But the sheer size of the protected wilderness areas in Tasmania is huge, literally thousands of square kilometres,and because these areas are protected the game for the tigers to eat is limitless,havnt seen one myself but could tell you of at least 5 people who i know who have genuinely seen them from the early 80s right up to recently.extinct they are not.rare and elusive they are.

    I think out of all the supposedly extinct species, the Tassie Tiger is the most likely one to still exist, given that they were definately still about until 1936.

    If they do still exist which I believe is a strong possibility given all the sightings, then I'm sure they only do in remote, isolated remnant populations and need help. I wouldn't be surprised if the Tasmanian authorities have already put conservation measures in place to help the tigers and maybe on the quiet even know about their continued existance?

    It also appears likely that many locals in Tasmania, particularly in extreme rural areas know the Tassies are still about but don't even bother to say anything cause they know they won't be taken seriously unless they have high ranking jobs?

    A another sad tale of human ignorance unneccessarily wrecking, destroying wildlife which could co-exist in the world alongside humans without any trouble - And I think theres a strong chance they have been doing exactly that since the 1930's, albeit on the quiet!

    Australia still has masses and masses of ancient bush where Tassies could survive, and its not impossible that they are still exist on the mainland, especially given all the mainland sightings and aparent knowledge of Tassies living in Aussie in the late 1800's, thousands of years after they officially became extinct there.

    While concrete proof of the Tassies not being extinct would really make me feel great, in a way, I feel that if they have have survived this long without official acceptance of existance then with all the wilderness still available in Tasmania then it wouldn't that bad if they never get rediscovered!

    The story of the Thylacine has fascinated me for quite a while now. I feel its almost certain that the last officialy known Thylacine in 1936 wasn't the last one in existance. A recent report says that up to 91% of all species on Earth remain undetected and indigienous Aboringines who lived just as their ancent ancestors did thousands of years before and had no knowledge of the modern world were discovered in 1984. These facts combined with the numorous Thylacine sightings (not all of them are crank claims or mistaken identity, surely?), and the fact they were rarely seen before the supposed extinction date makes it more than likely that they are still about today. Hopefully one day the continued existance of Thylacines can be proved so that conservation measures are put into place to help the Thylacine population increase!

    Yet everyday I hope that eyewitness acounts are true and that more people will report there finds. Confined in Canada though, is kind of hard to help... but i swear i will grow to help the thylacine and some day be able to help them repopulate!

    Having had the pleasure of living in Tasmania for 2 years i grew so very fond of how magnificent a place it is. I have a deep respect for it's beauty and wonder. I found this sight for my son who choose to do his school project on Tasmanian Tigers. Reading the sightings was so exciting and so sad the injustice that has been done to these amazing creatures is horiffic.
    So sad that we are not educated enough to really appriciate simple things like how precious species is in school. Tasie tigers are truly special creatures.

    I really think that we should do something, because our behaviour only had destroyed many species of animals by now. And I am sure that if we won`t stop hurting animals and we won`t start to help them survive, it will end tragically. maybe we can survive without them, but look at them and you`ll see that we are hurting them without any reason.....

    Hello,

    My son Aaryan (9 years old), had to do a project in school on whether he believed the Tasmanian tiger was extinct or not. He was adamant that the Tasmanian tiger was not extinct and is still alive in Tasmania. I became so curious about his beliefs that I also started researching and whilst previously I believed that they were extinct, I don't anymore. I think they are as alive and living as we are. I grew up in Tasmania, attending Hobart Matriculation College and then the University of Tasmania and I would have loved to meet you. Please keep up your good work and dont let anyone temper with your beliefs. Congratulations and love the picture of your house. Roma Kumar.

    I recently visited Tas with me wife for a relaxing vacation. I asked many people re the tiger and ass you said, many locals say they are there but dont say too much due to the Parks people etc. When you ask the Parks and Wild Life staff its as if they have been programmed in regards to their response.

    I am 57 and an excelent bushman tracker and hunter. I beleive I could trap one if given enough assistance. All I would need is to know where they have been seen and I know how to set up traps using recorded sounds of rabits and hares in distress on a recorder. This could be set up in the trap with fresh meat. I have trapped foxes and let me tell you thay are one of the hardest things to catch as they are so smart. I would be happy to spent a whole month in the bush if need be and if we were able to obtain a sponsor we could set up night vision cameras etc. Even using a helicopter with night heat sensor vision equipment you could cover a lot of ground at night. But it all takes money I guess.

    Anyway please get back to me and let me know if I can be of assistance.

    I agree with previous post..alot of people in Tasmania believe in tas tigers alot dont,the latter usually because they havnt pe rsonally seen one or its easier to think that way...The fact is if u look at the large forests in Tasmania there is plenty of places for them to reside undetected..they are a reclusive nocturnal animal with a sence of smell unequaled...alot of sighting are unreliable but some are most certainly the real thing...I personally have seen one in close up in the south western area of Tas only 3years ago..and have never reported it officially.. I prefer to keep this memory for myself as not many people WANT to believe you..although i KNOW what i saw,Without a photo its almost impossible to prove to the doubters that they exist..the description i hav of the tiger is it was walkin slowly down to a unamed lake where it drank ..as i was hiking i watched it to it must have smelt me and turned around in a most unusual way.. it looked stiff..&sort of loped away..it was a light sandy brown colour with about 15 chocolate brown stripes on it..it will live with me forever..They are STILL there people..

    For anyone to say that Tasmanian Tigers do not exist is a person who is in ignorance to facts..There are every Year RELIABLE sighting of tas tigers.. Most Are NOT reported..I know personaly of at least 5 people who have seen them in the last twenty years some sighting very recent in the north west ,west and the central south west of the state..To say we need a photo to prove there existance is crap ..this would discredit those who HAVE seen them..Anyway a photo has NEVER been taken of a tiger alive in the wild..even when they were a plenty..They are nocturnal and a sighting by day is extremely rare..let alone havin a camera at the ready to take a photo. Some people also say there is only a small pocket of bush they could live in ..so they would have to have been seen..once again this is rubbish there are around 17000 square kilometres of world heritage national parks&reserves in tasmania these place are VAST ISOLATED and HAVE to be SEEN to believed... there are huge areas these tigers ARE in and a are relatively undetected..

    People, please. I live in Tasmania, and never before in my life have I seen a tiger. Granted, that doesn't mean that they dont exist, but I can promise that the theorys I have been reading on this site about breeding and mutation are ridiculous and untrue. Also, allow me to point out the obvious fact that some people are missing - Tasmanian Tigers are from Tasmania. These reports of tigers being seen on the mainland are obviously wrong, simply because if the tigers couldn't get to the mainland before they were suppossedly extinct, how are they meant to, under a close watchful eye, in this day and age?
    It is my opinion that even if a tiger did reappear right now, if would be quickly rushed to a zoo and gawked at. I truely hope that these wounderful animals do what they can to stay out of human contact.

    If anyone would like to see one, go into the bush and you might. In 1978 one friday I had done a days work, come home packed the car, driven 60 km into the Barringtons, set up camp, drank 2 cans of beer, it was on the darker side of dusk when i went to have a close look at a tree just out side the head light beam of my car when I heard a noise, I turned my head and about 4 feet ( 1.3 m) from me in the light beam of my car a tasie tiger walked past me. KEEP THE FAITH, BELIEVE WHAT YOU ARE FEED, HAVE ANY THEROY YOU WANT, SAY WHAT YOU ABOUT THIS. I know and I think the TASMANIAN ABORIGINALS ALIVE TODAY KNOW TOO.

    Spotted Tas Tiger just outside of Waratah on the west coast had to slow car to a stop due to smoke from bushfire or burn off crossing the road.The tiger walked out in front of car..about 4feet...would of hit him if i had not have stopped he looked at the two of us in the car and walked slowly away away to the other side of road viewed him up close for atleast 10seconds and disapeared in the smoke and bush..he was sandy yellow in very good condition with very distinctive strip es down his back and rump had a very long straight tail.. we wer both in shock of what we had witnessed...just wished we had a camera...this was in 1991..no matter what people say they are DEFINATELY still there..

    It is not merely a theory, it is scientific and practical. By the way, I think it is pretty amusing that most of the people that 'believe' these creatures still exist are tourists (generally American).

    Many theories have been advocated by people in the past. Flat Earth Theory, The Sun orbits around Earth Theory are some easy examples. Now, the Tasmanian Tiger is extinct may be just another example of a 'popular' theory.

    I would just like to say that unfortunately it is almost impossible that the Tasmanian Tiger would exist today, especially on the mainland Australia, if they did there would be more notable sightings. After extensive research and consultation it became clear to me that with large concentrations of feral species (fox and rabbit), the carnivorous Tasmanian Tiger would flourish, an abundance in prey and no predators to compete with thylacine numbers/sightings would be numerous . In reference to Michael Moss' videos on youtube, although persuasive, are absolutely farcical and his constant snide remarks on Parks Victoria (his issues with the large amount of vegetation in a national park) only add to the rudimentariness of his argument. It is unfortunate that these creatures have been made extinct by human complacency. They would be quite effective in reducing numbers of introduced species and would create another layer to Australian native fauna. Saying this, it is important to note that this creature would undoubtedly be regarded as a pest in today's climate, posing a risk to now vulnerable Australian wildlife and also livestock. I believe people need to consider the 'bigger picture' and choose not to focus on specific incidents but the general likelihood of their existence and see the thylacine as an extinct and vanished species, rather than some sort of clandestine novelty.

    I beleive I have written here before, and i'll do it again.
    I'm now 15 and Heard about this animal years ago while looking at my uncles magazines. I thought it was beautiful, I can't believe they killed it off. I recently found out they are trying to bring back the thylacine through careful breeding and mutation. If there are still some out there i hope they make themselves known soon

    I saw one when travelling through state forest between Rosa Brook and Margaret River. It was 1995, my two friends saw exactly what I saw, crossing the Mohen highway which is a gravel pot holed track through thick forest. what we saw at first looked like a skinny long dog with vertical black stripes down its back and tail. the gait was strange and the tail was stiff. it was the colour of a buckskin horse. sort of beige. it just bounded across the road approximately twenty metres in front of our car. There are no dogs which have stripes like this one we saw.And there are no other native animals with this description. the caves around here have yielded thylacine remains dated at around twenty thousand years old. I know I wasn't having some freaky vision because my two friends saw the same thing. I know these amazing animals are still here. Check out Sid Slee,s book, Lair of the Marsupial Wolf.

    did they survive past 1936 yes I think they definitley did, probably into the 50's possibly into the 60's and maybe in the 70's and a remote chance the early 80's
    but the last decent reliable sounding sightings were in 1972, Sadly and against my deepest wishes I have to agree with the late great Dr Guiler, I think they are all long gone, remember there were probably never more than about 3000 in total at any one time, but I really want to be proved wrong, I really do.

    i am really sad that the tasmanian-tiger is extinct. Because of the human race but every creature should be cherished or later generations will not see any beautiful creatures we see today. i am only 13 and i wanted to see one but i can't because of the insolence of the people before us. i know they had no other choice but...
    i still think (and hope) that they are still alive but you never know what could happen

    I saw a tasmanian tiger on the 24th of november 2004 615 in the morning at lake king william near derwent bridge while trout fishing it was approximately 20-30 meters away from me and i watched it 4 approximately 5-10 minutes as it walked through the bush. it will live and die with me and is something i think about every day.

    found out about this awesome mammal from a video game.. Ty the Tasmanian Tiger, i have been researching this wonderful animal to find if there are any alive and if so to start breeding and if not i am determined to recreate one using dna from animals with similar characteristics. as you can see i am wanting to recreate the tasmaninian tiger and try and bring the species to life again :)

    Please keep up the good work as it sounds like its up to good people like yourselves to not let the thylacine be totally forgotten...as for the government official warning people from tracking the tiger, please tell them to keep up their efforts because if they are prosecuted for tracking an animal that supposedly doesn't exist, this means 2 things....
    1: the court would have to formally aknowledge the existence of the tiger today. I mean how can you be prosecuted for tracking something that supposedly doesn't exist.
    2:The media coverage from said trial would be worlwide, something I'm sure the government and timber industry wouldn't want.

    I'm 13 years old, and my father was into Cryptozoology. I believe that there are too many reliable sightings (Not including the one in Texas reported below) of these creatures to say they truly went extinct. I hope that as an adult, I may fund two expeditions- One in Victoria, one in Northeast Tasmania to find these mysterious animals, if someone hasn't already rediscovered them by then. And should that happen, I'll simply fund an expedition to document them.

    Crazy as it sounds, my daughter and I spotted an odd looking animal in east Texas about ten years ago. It frightened us and we frightened it. We ran. Later we
    looked for a picture of the animal we'd seen. Perusing a
    dictionary, we came upon a drawing. Simultaneously we
    exclaimed, "that's it!". However, upon reading the info next to the picture, we learned the thylacine is extinct.
    To this day, we swear that's what we saw.

    I have heard about this animal before but had been under the impression it became extinct in the 1920's. It would be wonderful if this was false. With all the sightings you mention and the abundance of digital cameras can you not find a picture or ask your membership to set up a motion capture on a tripod? Most of the most recent digital slr cameras an do this now. Of course most will come up with small nocturnal beasts or other animals but it is worth a try. My most sincere hopes are with you and all the interested peoples in Tasmania. Best of luck. Nancy

    Very interesting and informative site.
    Only criticism - I wish people would use the other name, i.e. 'Tasmanian Wolf', it evolved along the same lines as a wolf, and those faint stripes do not make it the least tiger-like.
    I so wish they were still alive somewhere, and that you, or some other naturalist could trap them and put them on an island sanctuary. safe and undisturbed.
    I had not realised that, even now, any surviving animals would be killed by unscrupulous forestry owners.

    Dear Thylacine Researcher

    I can’t see racialism in blaming colonization and the crimes committed along. It’s all matter of acts, not of races. The point of view of condemning colonization deserves respect. It’s a French man who writes these lines though, even not a Swiss ! I’m not either the one you could call Third-Worldist. But I think some things must be basically understood. As everyone knows, France wasn’t the last country having colonized other ones. In our modern world, such acts of the past appeal to be paid. Wanna escape it ? If so, I can see only two means :
    1) A very old idea in order to leave no one to whom pay the debt, consists in slaughting all aborigenes until the very last one. Some had got and applied it with success centuries ago, in the name of an imperial crown, a dominant religion or so on, to justify all their acts, not only their best ones, without minding how heavy their legacy would weigh for their descendants to take over.
    2) A more modern idea : move to a « paradise » that has never been directly involved in colonization. Switzerland for instance. Yes, making good chocolate needs cocoa beans from tropical countries, but the Swiss never really got further : finance can be dealt at distance without striking a blow, keeping a smart, tidy appearance while letting others hold the lash (do the dirty job) …
    Although I have no remembrance whether any of my grand-[…]-grandfather would have ever taken part in a colonial expedition, I am citizen of a former colonizing nation. Thus I must say that we all French citizens have more or less (some undoubtedly more than others !) profited by that bleak part of our History. Now, no argument, no choice, we must pay very expensive the heavy consequences, coming partly from colonization, in terms of (un)employment, housing problems, delinquency and so on, and it’s only the beginning… Even though some pay rather FOR others than along with them : pass your neighbour the boiling potato is as usual here as anywhere else !
    In the chapter of common customs, cynophagy is in China, Corea, northern half of Viêt Nam (thit cho) down to Da Nang (thit cay) : even in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) or Nha Trang, you won’t find a meal prepared with dog meat (I’ve been there twice) and I’m not certain that this practice is so usual in Malaisia. And beside its cultural sides, please mind that food isn’t exactly so easy in certain countries as in our well-fed countries where the occidental level of life can still be enjoyed (Half a loaf is better than no bread). To see in it an evidence of the latters’ superiority, seems to me a bit easy. So where it’s harder, people must adapt their choices to what they can find, instead of being so difficult as we others are : they dare eat dogs, cats, rats and even snakes, insects... I don’t say I myself would taste these foods with pleasure. But let’s also remember that during the wars in Europe, it used to be the same ! As much as I know, none of those species is in danger of extinction, although certain insects, even without the same affective load, deserve a closer look, every being a link in the food chain.
    Well I agree, dear Thylacine Researcher, I digressed a good deal from this website’s main topic. So, did you find a living thylacine ? Of course, on our poor planet, quarelling people, others doing their best on school projects, are easier to find than pouched wolves… A living one could perhaps be found in a world where knowledge and regard towards life and difference would prevail over the will of power, but I’m not sure, despite all automatic infrared cameras installed in the Tasmanian forest, this could still happen in this world. Perhaps in another one…
    Cheers anyway, don’t give up hope !

    IN regards to this vile persons comment. Malaysia has sent thousands of species extinct by eating them!They still eat cats and dogs in Malaysia, talk about barbaric people!

    The even Kill there own kind-humans!We have tried to right our past mistakes (the Thylacine was not officially declared extinct either till 1986 decades after the last apparent one was killed)your country continues to degraded peoples basic human rights and makes comments such as you just did.!

    Ummmm It is a well known scientific fact settlers did kill many of them but the Aborigines and the URU- and Homo erectus-the yowie took them to the brink mrs wong if that is even your real name, long long before Settlers came there.

    Your ill-informed comment we refuse to admit it, we have admitted it and this lack of knowledge on your part except to have a go at Australians show your thinking is really typically racist!

    Bullshit. It had gone extinct because of settlers.but you guys just refused to admit it. It is just one of your many many crimes committed in colonisation.

    hey im a 13 year old kid from brooklyn ive always wondered about all extinct or unknown creature and i dont get frustrated when i see that the puzzle isnt complete i just get more excited (but that can be a pain) anyway i do most of all like this mystery and i feel inside its still around and even if it is we should never make a mistake like this never let a creature become nearly extinct and thats because every living thing is pretty incredible.

    Hi I'm 17 and me and my dad have always been intreged by the Thylacine. My ansestors are convicts from tasmainia, and ive visited Hobart and surounding areas many times. And i KNOW there still out there. Recently, by extreme coincedence an old man across the road, told me a story, in which he has told no one else before. Back in his 20's (which was around 1960's) he was a volunteer fireman in WA. On there way to a large bushfire ...clearly a thylacine walked in the middle of the road, stopped the truck in its tracks, stared at them, then walked back into the bush. Him and his mates were silent and then he said " was that?" and his mate said "yep". Then they all swore to never mention that day agian to anyone, because they felt that they were putting the Thylacines future at risk, and also they felt that they would be ridiculed. I believe the old man's story because i could just feel the passion in his voice, and i trust it was the truth, anyway i had shivers down my spin the whole time. Believe what you want, but im sure there out there, not only in TAZ but on the mainland.

    Hi Joan & Buck
    My country, Mauritius has a similar experience with its Native Bird, THE DODO, extinct by the end of the 17th century by the arrival of European white settlers.
    We're always sad and sorry we were not there at that time to help to do something. I guess you also!!
    So, being an animal lover, I joined the cause of the critically endangered Asiatic Lion which only 300 survive in their last abode, the Gir forest of India. visit our website www.asiatic-lion.org We can still do something in that case. Oh I would have loved to see a live tasmanian tiger one day!!

    I recently watched a program on the History channel about the Tasmanian tiger and was very intrigued to think they could still be in existence. What an unusual looking creature. It's ability to open it's mouth that wide makes it seem almost like something out of a horror film. I will watch for further developments in the dilema of whether some are still alive or not.

    Up until 2 days ago, I had no idea there was even such a thing, until I finished a book called "A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson. His account of the 1936 "extinction" at the Hobart Zoo instantly filled me with horror and a darkness. After doing soem research on the net and finding this site, I am afraid I have fallen in love with this species, and the recent eye-witness accounts of the Tassie are very exciting!

    Please look after your Tassie's, Australians! I hope the Tassie is removed from the "EXTINCT" blacklist soon! I swear I'll cry when that happens!

    Regarding the Tasmanian authorities : isn’t there a paradox between assuming a species is extinct and fining AUS$ 5000 anyone who catches a specimen of it? How can anybody catch an extinct animal?... And this fine could even be just the iceberg’s emerged part : if you succeed in displaying a living thylacine in this 21st century, feel glad that logging industries such as the WEAPONN’s Pty Ltd, who’ve got the forementioned authorities in their pocket, don’t send their cowboys on your heels to bump you off and that you are like thylacine, ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin’alive! Stayin’alive! Some of those industries are told to poison logging planned areas in seldom carnivorous species’ (like thylacine’s) territory in order to get rid of it definitely, as though they tacitly doubted whether such a species was really extinct... Perhaps would they dare send hired killers up to the other side of the world to “finish the work” with anyone who’d stand across their holy, sacrosanct interests.
    Fortunately, there exists other means to show evidence of thylacine’s surviving than physically catching one. I mean a good movie of it, displaying a specimen (or two) in details from head to tail, its own movements and a modern item in the background (a car or whatever, in that sense 1973 Doyle’s film wouldn’t be bad, if the running beast was not so blurred...), though nowadays’technology should be sufficient to show clearer pixes than in the past, would be the most efficient evidence. Then what about the genuine filming place? Persons like so-named “Tigerman” (http://www.users.bigpond.com/tigerbook/ “Magnificent Survivor”) assert it’s better to keep it secret... For or against it?
    Sincerely hoping you succeed in this extraordinary enterprise.

    I have been reading about various sighting and they confirm what my late husband saw in 1986.
    It was on Blanket Hill between Heyfield and Licola, [south east Gippsland] Victoria.
    John was a log truck driver and on this day about 8.30am I think he said, he was bringing a load down to Heyfield. He saw the animal very clearly and actually slowed down and stopped to watch it.
    The Thylacine was standing at the side of the road very calmly.
    For quite a while they just watched one another and then it slowly turned and moved off into the bush. He described it perfectly and said it did not seem at all disturbed by him. I just thought that you may be interested in this sighting. I had just been reading an article in March copy of Readers Digest and it prompted my memory.
    I hope they never catch one let them live in peace in the bush.

I sure hope that you guys who are searching and researching thylacine will be able to proof that they still live. It will be GREAT if any of you (who are in Tasmania) can take pictures of thylacine if it appears again... Wish I could be there.... I would love to help....

    This is the most amazing species in the world in my opinion, and I am currently saving my money to go on a month long vacation to Australia to go on my own expedition to try and find remains (or physical proof) of these still being alive.
    I hope to come back with some evidence to at lease help coax researchers to do a full out investigation to find one living in the wild, but the fact that there have been no sightings confirmed in the past 50 years makes me doubtful.
    I have heard of the DNA they have gotten and are trying to reproduce in mice, and I am also disappointed that they have abandoned trying to clone one as well. The problem i see with the cloning of this species (in the beginning at least) is that the only DNA we have of them isn't diverse enough to make healthy mating conditions if a male and female were to be cloned. It has been proven that two different Tasmanian Tigers from about 20 years apart, had almost identical DNA from the dying of the species. If we do bring them back, it would be a shame to have them die out again or undergo mutations or sicknesses from inbreeding.

    Glad to have posted,

    Struck out of admiration for people keeping on believing that such a mythical, beautiful animal as thylacine still exists, though officially considered extinct since 1936. It sounds clear I have NOT a chance to see any alive in my country! Some recent sightings too from Gippsland, Victoria, esp. footprints, let the entire puzzle... Possibly some'd have been reimported in mainland Australia ? An act of aware people of thylacine coming to extinction about 80 years ago?...
    Then I came to a short parallel with a European wild animal :

    Displacing bears – a solution to preserve endangered species?

    Getting less and less numerous in the Pyrenean mountains, on both sides of the French-Spanish boarder, brown bears are considered a critically endangered species. The French government decided to release 3 individuals in 1996, again 5 in 2006, all from Slovenia, a mountainous country between Italy, Croatia and Austria. The environment there, much similar to the Pyrenees, has allowed the same species’ preservation : ursus arctos.
    Noisy fuss arose quickly around... and against the new stealthy, hard to follow incomers. GPS-locating emitters embedded in collars or under hide are not fully efficient, furthermore the authorities only publish their location 48 hours later, perhaps to let them some distance ahead of foe... but not to avoid unexpected, wrong meetings! That’s what happened to some strollers, hunters or motorists. Along with revival of ancestral fear, resp. rivalry in the background, bear’s opponents, mostly peasants, unearthed the hatchet. Bear is a territorial species, just like mankind, but it never wins from confrontations : shot or car bumped, many lead fragments are found under a murdered bear’s hide.

    Sure, it's not happy, like all endangered species'destiny. Apart from that fact that bear is critically jeopardized, yet not assumed extinct like thylacine.
    Keep your infrared cameras on, I wish well-intentioned people success in meeting peacefully, harmlessly on both
    sides, a thylacine family and catching nice pix of them.

    I got some good news for you, the tasmania tiger is thriving around bilambil Hieghts Inner bushland, it was spotted only a couple of weeks ago by 2 well educated people driving up hogans road, it ran across the road into the bushland, description was a huge tan brown dog cat like creature with black stripes down it side, they said it didnt look like a dog and was much bigger but did resemble a big cat panther like but simarlarities of both, thet said it was fast but they still got plenty of vision of this creature, which describes the tasmanie tiger to a tea, so I think the name tasmania tiger is really not the case as they seem to be an Australian Tiger also.

    I have worked as an Environmental Consultant for over a decade, and I know for a fact that rare or endangered flora and fauna are not a welcome find for most development proponents. I regularly hear from friends in the industry of the permanent removal of flora and fauna prior to ecological assessments taking place, and constant pressure to overlook or marginalise any finds. There are also plenty of cowboys in the industry who write whatever the client wants them to. What do you think a logging proponent like the Tasmanian Government is going to do with thylacine sightings, particularly when current practice is to wipe out all flora and fauna from clear felled areas prior to replanting with a single tree species? Any official confirmation that the thylacine is still alive and kicking will seriously impact forestry in Tasmania in its current practice.

    can someone tell where I would be able to view a photo of the tasmanian tiger that is quite well known . I have seen this photo and it is of 2 hunters I think they were actually men in suits and they have a tger in the photo that they had obversely killed. I am interested in the names of these gentlemen.email address is jmilner@people.net.au

    I go to Tassie each year for business and to hopefully see a Tiger. When you are in the Tasmanian wilderness you would not know if one was within a meter of you. I think that is the way it should be. They are out there.

    Okay so they're dead right. That's very sad they look pretty cool although I do agree w/ the person before me. Although they're extinct, it's all part of God's plan animals die and then new animals come even though so many species have extinct there are so much more new species of animals being found. So, don't worry about it!

    I hope cloning can be perfected to the point that animals humans have destroyed from the earth can once again live. We need to make amends for the eco-crimes we have commited in our population explosion across the globe. Cloning is a way we could replenish the diverity of the earth. Wild animals are part of our own nature. In killing them we have lost something that crys deep with in us. Even individuals living in sactuaries and zoological parks serve a need purpose for todays humans, not to say anything of restoring their god given right to exsistance. So many gone.. so much lost.... California and its Grizzy Bear... seen now only on its flag... What is more Australian than a Tazmaian Tiger? What has more right to exsist? A stuffed murdered Tigher or a living one?

    I wish it could be proven, or that somehow through technology they could be brought back.

    Your site is very informative. I've always been fascinated by the "tigers". I'm sure that the governments lack of enthusiasm can be contributed to the fact that if the tiger is rediscovered people would be clamoring for its and its habitats protection. I'm sure that would cut into the government's profit margin.

    thanks for the site.

    Hi, I read that the researchers that sequenced half of the woolly mammoth DNA used genetic material found on woolly mammoth hair. This DNA from hair is well preserved and doesn't have bacterial contamination which is a problem when bone or muscle tissue is used. The keratine found in hair acts as a barrier to prevent bacterial contamination. In the article it was also mentioned that this group of researchers at Penn State University had received Thylacine hair samples. There is a lot of new exciting scientific research that might in one day in the future bring the Thylacine back.

    I hope someone could assist me in getting the Discovery channel documentary "End of extinction:Cloning of the tasmanian tiger" since I cannot find it locally or at amazon. Anybody know where I can get this DVD, I would really appreciate any assistance!!

    I just read about the late "Crocodile Hunter", Steve Irwin's "lost" episode documenting the fauna of Tasmania and their personal hunt for the thylacine.
    Since this episode is for some odd reason, now "lost", it seems that there may be a conspiracy to keep evidence this animal still exists under wraps. It's intriguing to speculate whether these measures are being undertaken for the prosperity of a wild population or for govermental monetary gains from the profits of logging.
    It also strikes me as odd the local authority's ridicule and derision towards people who think they may have seen a thylacine in the wild. It's not like an abominable snowman or the Jersey Devil here in the states, which are fantastical creations, but a possible species to be brought back from the brink of permanent annhilation.
    I saved this site and I'll be keeping track of anything new added in the future regarding the hunt for evidence of the thylocine's possible existence.
    This intrigues me to no end.
    Keep on believing,

    I saw a striped dog/cat animal walking through my campsite a year ago (2007) at Fairbairn Dam near Emerald, Qld. It didn't look exactly like the pictures I've seen of Tassie Tigers but it's the closes match I've been able to find. What I saw had stripes along its head and had larger triangular 'foxy' ears, but it wasn't a fox. The Queensland Museum assure me that it had to be a fox with mange, but I can't agree.

    Hi Chris.
    How viable is this DNA? Can PCR be used on it? If so could, say, a Kangaroo be used as a host for a chimera? Maybe take a fertilised kangaroo egg and insert some Thylacine DNA. If the resultant chimera reaches adulthood extract a fertilised egg and insert more DNA into that egg; do this with successive generations. See what happens and perhaps several generations down the line their may be an opportunity to splice Thylacine sex chromosomes into an egg. We may not have any yet but their are several 'wet' Thylacine samples in existence. Something may crop up in the future.

    Hi Lucia,

    thanks for pointing out that recent film footage. I have taken a look at it and although I can't say what it is, I can say for certain it's not a Tasmanian tiger.

    It would be most extraordinary for there the be any living Tasmanian tigers outside of Australia, with perhaps the exception of Indonesia.

    All thylacines that shipped out of Australia before 1936 were destined for zoos where they lived, were documented, and died. The United States did receive thylacines, as did the United Kingdom and Germany (and possibly others that I'm not aware of).

    There is a far better chance that thylacines might still exist in Tasmania, or, less of a chance, on the mainland of Australia.

    Hi Jeff from Vancouver,

    yes - there certainly are!

    Col Bailey is well known for his 30 or so years of research on the thylacine and for going out into the field in Tasmania in search of evidence.

    A person using the name "Tiger Man" has published a freely downloadable book called "Magnificent Survivor" based on his 4 or so years of searching.

    In addition I am aware of a number of other people involved in searching for the thylacine in Tasmania, but apart from knowing they're searching I don't know anything else. (I have it on good report though).

    Further, there are groups on the mainland of Australia searching there also. Victoria seems to be the most active state in terms of publishing information on the web, but sightings certainly happen in Western Australia, New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland also - and each state has people involved in searching for thylacines.

    Hi Aaron,

    there are no close living relatives of the thylacine left alive. Also, the DNA is badly degraded. Scientists did make some progress with being able to reproduce the DNA, but the pieces are all split up.

    Before they could even think of using the DNA they would have to build it back up into the thylacine's chromosomes and we don't even know how many chromosomes thylacines had.

    It would be like a ten million piece jigsaw puzzle that fits together in a million different ways and only one way is right, but you can't know which one it is!

    Keep asking the questions though! And there's lots we can do to protect those species that still are alive!

    Hello,
    I am a 14 year old guy in the USA, and I was wondering:

    Isn't there a close relative of the tiger and if there is, why don't they just use DNA from the frozen tiger embryo and put in the relative.

    Sure, it won't be a true tiger, but it would do until they find and capture 1 right?? Could some1 answer my questions??

    Finding a living Taz Tiger,would set into motion a set of events that could save the species forever.International pressure would come to bear as never before on the government ,forcing them initiate extraordinary conservation measures.The international interest in the Tiger would explode.I could see captive breeding programs,preserves. as well as an army of scientists decsending on Tasmania in an all out effort to save this fabled National treasure. Remember the California Condor.Optimistic? maybe, but a true believer non the less.

    I believe i saw a saw a Thylocene at the base of the Barrington tops near Wolemi brook on the 21/7/08 at around 11 am, whilst i was travelling to a remote a exploration drill rig site. I am a geologist and had another geologist see it too. It was not a fox, wild dog or Dingo or Quoll!!. It was not striped but had 2 large bands or darker colour on its shoulders and hind section. Was dog like but had a different stance ie hind quarter high, it had a size between a fox and a dingo. I saw it for about 5 seconds as it crossed a remote dirt road. I have also looked at the situational geography. The area is full of wombat burrows and many sandstone caves. I have a science degree and am competley honest in my statement. I have researched the mainland Thylocene and realize that it was regarded as around only 2ooo years ago. As a geologist this is like a blink of the eye in time factors. I believe they are still around and even with all the mining in the Hunter Valley. I actually believe it may advantage these animals in this particular situation, by forcing them out (due to noise etc) off the open planes at the base of the Mountain belt and back into the wilderness which should see them safe from human intervention. I have a science degree and stake it's value on my assertion.

    Dr. Jeremy Austin Australian Centre for Ancient DNA, School of Earth and Environmental Sciences The University of Adelaide has been analyzing purported thylacine scat samples, and hopes to compare DNA found there with that of other large marsupials to rule out other known "depositors" and point to the tiger as the likely suspect. He gave a talk on this in October 2007. Apparently it is slow going, but this seems a promising approach.

    It's a shame really....the damage that humans have done. Everytime I look at a Thylacine photo it haunts me and really makes me realize how horrible humans can be. It also make me sad to think this could have been the same fate for our timber wolves.

    me encantó esta página, además quiero manifestar que me llena de nostalgia saber que un animal de tanta belleza como el tilacino yá no esté más con nosotros, y todo por culpa de nosotros mismos.
    Apoyo 100% el proyecto de la clonación del tilacino y espero que en un futuro no muy lejano el tilacino pueda regresar.

    I enjoy the information that you have on the sight about the tasmanian-tiger/wolf. I have so often wanted to see one of the magnificent animals in the real life and unfortunate for myself and my children and of course now the grandchildren we are allowed to veiw only a film of the last ones in captivity. This saddens me greatly, and if there is anyone out there that has actual film footage of a sighting I would encourage you to make it public to the people who run this sight. I also say that we keep up the search for this animal not to kill it or to capture it for research but to preserve it for the future generations to come. There is a massive amount of land out there in the bush that the animals could still be able to make their home and mulitply, and that is one place to look and should there be, and I pray there is, a few of them out there I would say put a transmitter on them and then study from a far and help them not to harm them and get the population on the rise once more. There are ways to make a conservation that would help to protect some of the other animals that we have on this planet, and I say that we need to do just that.

    My brother and my husband both claim to have sighted a thylacine in the gippsland region, on 2 seperate occassions. One of these sightings was about 30 years ago. My brother reported it to whatever DSE called themselves then, but they were very dismissive and did nothing. have other people seen the thylacine in Victoria?

    The Thylacine would still be here to day, maybe in the Zoos of NY or the Grass plains of Australia, but one thing i know for sure is that the Thylacine isn't. The Thylacine was an amazing animal and i bet you today, if it were alive, it still would be truley amazing but it isn't alive and it truly would be an amazing animal. The Extinction of the Thylacine could have been prevented, it could have been easily prevented, but the irigance of the political community will never understand what each animal means to the earth, and to use. i think that if Australia stopped all of the bounties on the Thylacine and all the other animals, Australia would have been a smart and inteligent Country, i am not say they aren't smart but they could have been smarter. Over 2,100 Thylacines died due to bounties and hundreds more died because of angry famers. 2007 Dec.13

    The government is stupid. It is not necessarily that they dont believe the Thylacine exists, its that if they admit that the evidence of their existance is real, they have to do something about it. Its quite obvious though, that they believe putting money in their pocket from forresting and other activities envolving serious environmental impacts is more important than saving one of the worlds most unique and endangered animals. Although Im glad to see that some people are still being a stain in their hanky. Keep fighting!!

    If you live in the US, i'm afraid that wasn't a tiger. They only lived in Tasmania, but they used to be in mainland australia, tasmania and New Guinea.

    so, i'm afraid that you and your daughter must have seen a dog or something else.

    I am a bit afraid to post this, but will do it anyway because I am a bit confused about what I may have saw. Last night around 6:00 pm, my daughter and I were driving a long the road and we both saw this "cat" on the side, standing near some tall grass, so I slowed to look because I was afraid it was going to run out in front of me, and as we slowed he looked at us, and we at him, and he seemed rather sure of himself...so we both thought "oh hes not a cat, its a fox" but we both said outloud, "ewwwww" because the more we looked, the more he looked odd. His face was pointy, with slanty eyes, he was a brownish color and the weirdest part was his back legs were striped black and his tail looked thin, like a cats maybe, but a cat tail that had been chewed up, sort of...he seemed scared, but maybe too scared to run, then I had told my daughter to take a picture with her cell phone and as she lifted it, he "skulked" away, sort of weirdly. So we both decided he was a fox, but maybe an old fox. I thought it was atrange because I have seen fox before and I didnt remember seeing tabby like markings on them. So I got home and started to google, to no avail I could not find this particular fox, until I clicked on google images, then I saw a picture of a Tasmanian Tiger, without realizing what it was I said to my daughter "oh look this is the kind he was." She agreed. Then I clicked on the link and read what I read and am now shocked at what I may have saw. Although the more I read, I dont see where anyone has saw one in New Jersey. So can anyone help me out here, lol. I am really confused!

    its unfortunate that the tasmanian goverment have not held their head down in shame on what can only be discribed as mass genocide of the tasmanian tiger. those so called eye wittness reports of those innocent creatures,is no more then wishfull thinking ,delusion that they either can't or will not own up to the fact that they cause their extinction. dont get me wrong am not conparing your actions to that of nazi germany did to the jews! but at lease germany has own up to those facts. why o why o why cant you do the decent thing an own up no bulls***t they a extinct and we cause it no if's no but's......the only decent thing we can do as learn from those dark days and as a way we will donate money to the wwf world wildlife fund as away a small way of saying sorry. but please do not insult our intelligence by saying....i just spoted a tasmanin tiger they a not extinct DOH DOH DOH becuase if you exspect us to swallow that he's a story i have got the dodo and a t-rex as pets.

    This sight is fascinating. I love the fact that your grabbing history through sightings I've been to other Thylacine sites and yours is unique in that you have all the eye witness accounts. Story telling is raw history in it's simplest form. Great stuff, thank you for being here for all of us to experience. Let's all hope that if the tigers are found out there that they have been educated by sites like yours, so that they will know to leave them be and not try to catch or harm them. They are nature if let them be and change there habitat for the better they'll come back. Thanks again.

    I have been studying the Thylacine for the last year, I have read all of the sightings you guys have recorded. I can only say I am truly intriged. With the information I read on your web sites along with others have come to the same conclusion that the Tasmanian Tiger is still out there. The descriptions given by each person(or persons) is so accurate with each other. It is not right the state is covering this up, if it is about the ecomony, most likely what will happen if you find the Thylacine, the state will get more tourism because this creature was found. I agree 100% with this web site and I will continue to put in my comments, good luck with everything.

    tiger for a school project, this website was very interesting to read and we found alot of new information about this wonderful creature, i never knew that the tiger was found in Papua New Guinea? i found that very interesting because 1 of our questions to ask was why the tiger only survived and lived in Tasmania, so that was a helpful piece of information! thanx for you help and info! :)

    Hello,

    I was fishing the cobungra river in 2002 when i was greated by a thylacine on the other side of the river. Angus(friend) and i gazed at what we thort was a deadly wild dog but when we were confident that it was not going to kill us we knew it was a shy, dazzeled and tired Tazzie Tiger. We told parks but they didnt believe us they just said it was probly a wild dog. i feel so bad that i could not get a photo of the wonderfull creature. Thanks A Lot

    A while back i was watching a Zoo programme about a couple of Cassowary birds and just after it showed a strange Animal in a cage it looked very similar to a Tasmanian-Tiger but no stripes i could see and looked brown. I have tried to found the Zoo in question but of no luck. Please if any one knows off a Newquay Zoo outside England please tell me.

    Thank you for this sight it is great to see I am not the only cheerleader for our tiger!

    Hey every one!!! hey, i truely believe that the tasmanian tiger is still alive. I remember as a little kid watching the video from the Hobart Zoo and watching the history channel about it. I was so fascinated. I've always wanted them to clone the tiger and the wooly mammoth. I agree that the government should work towards cloning the creature. I LOVE U DESTINY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was driving out west of nsw 60 km west of Balranald when I came upon a tassie tiger at 2am. I had slowed for a couple of hundred rabbits and was just starting up again in my old morris minor 1000 when I came at slow speed, 15mph in 1977 upon a second group and right in the middle was a young tasmanian tiger with a poined head, kangaroo like fur and a long thin tail it sat facing me mesmerized by the lights as were the rabbits. after a good few seonds it loped away. I had a magnificent view of it head on face to face sitting in the middle of the road not much more than 15 feet away. and again as it loped away in a carefree manner. It displayed no fear and was the gentlest sweetest creature I have ever seen. I think it was young about 12-13 inches from the ground to the top of its back.I didn't see any stripes and I don't think it had any but it was obviously a marsupial. I could tell by its fur.

    It was about three in the morning when I was watching a show on the Discovery channel about monster hunters. There were stories of big foot, lochness , and one story of a Thylocene (Tasmanian tiger). They said that the animal had been erraticated in the late 30's, but to this day people have claimed to have witnessed them in the wild and on their property. I found this particular story really interesting so i decided to look up the animal. This led me to your site (after googling Thylocene), and I must say it is awesome to hear all the stories of sightings people have posted. There is no doubt in my mind that this beautiful creature is still alive somewhere in the forests. So I end this entry having said this. Don't let the government shy you away from what you believe you have seen, there are way to many things out there they do not have the answer for. Your site has made me a true believer and am most defiantly excited to hear more stories.. Your friend Michael Murphy (24) Toronto/Canada

    I am a believer - I have to be, because the alternative is just too upsetting. Besides, there have been far too many sightings. However, I don't think that we should abandon the possibility of cloning this creature. After all, if the animal is extinct, it was man's doing, and should be undone. What a shame that a creature is hunted so passionately, for the "sin" of simply being alive. I will continue to believe. Brenda

    Oh my gosh, THANK YOU for convincing me that the thylacine still lives....maybe it sounds strange but ever since I was little I have been upset about it being extinct. I had heard that there have been sightings and I was hopeful but I never looked into it until now. I am 100 percent certain that the Doyle sighting and video is a true thylacine caught on tape. Nobody should be quick to label this as a dog or a possible fox with mange. The truth is in the tail. I have seen pictures of foxes with mange- their tails resemble that of a rat and are neither that long nor that thick. Furthermore it is too large to be a fox. And that is not the tail of a dog. The body structure, including the head, legs, and tail, are undoubtedly that of a thylacine. I have watched this video and read up on sightings and I can tell you that I am neither stupid nor gullible. THE THYLACINE LIVES. feel free to contact me: I_love_my_monster@hotmail.com

    I hope you do find the Tasmanian Tiger. I hope that if this animal is found it would be protcted not just in word but by deed. We, humans have killed off so many species of animals. Now, we turn on each other.

    If this once thought extinct animal were found and truly protected it would restore my faith in humanity and our ability to heal the world. Right our wrongs so to speek.

    Good luck.

    Wow. I really enjoyed this site. Now I have an animal extinction conspiracy theory. Haha.
    But seriously, I don't think this animal is extinct at all. If anything I think they've out smarted people, it's not hard! Probably because of how they were hunted, they've learned to stay away from people, but when spotted they try not to make a scene so they quickly disappear. Almost making all of us...seem crazy. There again...out smarting all of us.
    Oh, and if anyone has ever heard of the ceolocanth a rare prehistoric fish. Yes, they were thought to have been extinct for millions of years. But in 1938 a school of them were caught off ofthe coast of Africa. My point exactly...

    THIS ANIMAL IS STILL ALIVE =D

    I also saw this on MySpace! I was really curious about it. At first U thought the footage was pretty old! But eventually as I got more into it I decided to look up the animal. ALL of the results led to sites explaining how the Thylacine became extinct. I was extremely dissapointed! But then a again their are records in which people have announced sightings of the Thylacine. But every time someone does that it's usually a lie to get them on NBC. But then again it could be the truth. You never know. But I really do hope that the Thylacine is still oot their. Just waiting to show itself. So that they can just shove the news up reporters BUTTS! I just hope I'm their to see em`. ^^

    I absolutely love your website! I have been addicted to animals ever sine I was a small child, I knew every species and different facts about each one, but when I got into high school I moved on to different things. I recently am discovering how passionate I once was and I have also realized that nothing else makes me feel so interested and in awe than animals, especially rare and once thought to be extinct species. I remember reading about the Tasmanian Tiger when I was young and I always found animals that have become extinct within the last 100 years to be the most interesting. Thank you so much for creating this website, it has started a fire that hasn't burned in years. I hope that I have an opportunity to work in this sort of field for my life's work and that an opportunity comes my way. Good luck with the search for such an illusive and amazing creature. Keep up the fantastic work!!!

    Thank you so much for keeping up this wonderful website. I am always a believer in the "unseen," and hope someday to travel and visit your wonderful world and take my own photographs of the creatures (real and "extinct") that inhabit your island paradise. The way I see it, if they are still out there, everyone should know about it, so we can as a whole world together, protect them. And if they are not, the whole world should know about them, to keep us from repeating the past and destroying more precious species. Anyway, I am rambling... Take care and keep up the good work!!

    Just because you can't see something doesnt mean it isnt real ,you cant see the air but if it wasnt there we would all die.I know taz tigers are not like air but they are still out there ,they just stay away from people .For a start if we stoped destroying there habitat th en we might be able to see them more often. People hav already destroyed enough things, why do they want to destroy more?

    I think that the Tasmanian Government should not not just acept dead animals as evidece that the taz tiger still exists.Sometime someone is going to see one ,kill it and take it to the government ,they wont do this because they care about the tiger ,but because they want to be famous as the person who "redescovered" it. I dont mean that the government should acept every photo that looks remotely like a tiger ,but they should acept clear ,non-fuzzey photos as evidence. The tigers are still out there ,they just stay away from us.

    I think that the taz tiger must still be out there somewhere ,maybe not in Australia but it must stillbe in Tasmania somewhere.I dont think that cloning it would be a good idea because clones dont live as long as normal animals and get diseased more easily. Then when the clones are introduced into the wild they will breed with the existing population and the next generation will get diseased and die ;and thats it ,the taz tiger will be gone, EXTINCT FOR EVER. I know a lot of people think that cloning is a good thing in the 1930s a lot of people thought that trying to kill them all was a good idea now look what people think about that. By the way there are some great videos of taz tigers on you tube if anyone wants to see them.

    Hey everyone,
    I have been to Tasmainia and I though i saw one but I wasn't too sure because all i saw was a creamy-brown animal that looked like a dog but it had dark brown stripes on it, the animal (tasmanian tiger)was about ten meters away from me. I got a bit worried but then decided I'd keep what i saw to myself because no one would believe me. Anyway I'm doing a project on the Tasmanian Tiger and i was hoping if anyone knows when the first one was seen and where?

    Hello,
    My little boy has been fascinated with all wildlife since he was little and can recite facts about almost any animal in the world. He was telling me about an animal called the Tasmanian Tiger that had a kangaroo tail, the head of a wolf and the body of a tiger. He told me that it was believed to be extinct, but their were sightings of it still alive. I was intrigued and decided to look it up. He was right! I came to your site and was amazed. Neat home, neat adventures, great job in trying to preserve the forests and natural habitat in Tasmania. I hope some day I can take my boy there so he can first hand study the beautiful creations of this earth. -Melita

    I recently discovered the tasmanian tiger, and I think its the most beautiful animal I've ever seen. Sad part is I have to rely on pictures and old video in order to see something that could possibly still be alive, if not for us. I cant believe the size of its jaw! it looks like it could've torn anything apart!.

    I just watched the beginning of The Crocidile Hunter on Animal Planet and they were talking about the tazmanian tigers. It looked really cool so I looked it up on Google Images and found this site. I hope they exist, and I want to see one some day. It seems really different, there arent many predatory marsupials, and this one looks a lot like a dog.

    I JUST WATCHED THE CROC HUNTER FILES TODAY AND THEY WERE IN TAZMANIA LOOKING FOR DIFFERENT ANIMALS THAT IN HABIT AULSTRALIA . THEY DID BRING UP THAT THEY WOULD LOVE TO SEE A TAZMANIAN TIGER AND PROVE OF THEIR EXSISTANCE . I FOUND THAT THESE CREATURES ARE VERY NEAT AND I FEEL THEY DO EXSIST . WE JUST NEED TO KEEP SEARCHING AND DISCOVER THESE WONDERFUL ANIMALS AND HOW THEY LIVE . TAZMANIAN TIGERS RULE .

    This website has been very informative and inspiring! I truly do hope that they still exist. And if they do, which they probably do although not very many, I hope that the Tasmanian government along with other conservational agencies will get together to protect them! It's the least that we could do!!!

    What a neat home. I could move right in if it were available. I'm trying to line up a trip to Africa for a photo shoot. I spend all my time(almost all)looking for photo ops.
    Anyway keep in touch from time to time. I see Earl Gursky often and I talk to Bill Kernan alot as well as KiKi Dalhquist. Todd Stopnmik passed away about 6 weeks before Christmas. Hugs and good thoughts, keep breathing Bill and Harriet

    Wonderful Joan and Big Bad Buck,

    We liked your website a lot! While doing research on weird people in the lower half of the world, your names appeared at numbers 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 11 and 13. It must be the number of personalities. Or, maybe it's infamous stories. Or, it might just be the number of countries you have honestly visited. Your old and new houses in the bush are both terrific! The wrinkles are becoming. Joan you look much like a jungle jewel. Buckoo, are you sure there is not some Tasmania Devil in the family DNA? We are inspired to visit. Meanwhile, we have a house in the rocks that are waiting for your visit.

    I have been to Tasmania many times(both north and south), i have not seen any thyclines but i found and photographed a few tracks that i believe belong to the thylacine. my description of these tracks are as follows: medium sized dog paw prints with enlongated front pads(these were only found in the northwest corner of Tasmania just north of the river).......I believe the only way to get conclusive evidence would be a photograph..............a series of stationary infrared motion cameras at night during the feeding time might yield a picture of one.

    I travelled to Tasmania in the late 1990's and always used to think that it would be impossible for there to be a large mammal still alive there. But after seeing the rugged wilderness for myself I would never doubt anyone who said they had seen one. As I drove around the island I felt that a tiger could emerge from the bush at any moment. Sadly that didn't happen - but I am sure that it has for many people. I wish you luck in finding a tiger alive and well and congratulate you on your web site.

    Ok...1st... I LOVE your site. i just wish you had a link that said "photos" and had tons of old photos from the Hobart(sp) Zoo and stuff. I specially wanted to see more photos. Thank you for having a free site for all the tazzy lovers. Acually(sp) i have seen a tazzy before. when i was 5, i lives in Australia. We, my WHOLE family, pretty much lived on the same lot. We raised tons of sheep like a black faced one and a really wooly one. we kept them seperate right. Well it was my job and my cousins to feed the black faced ones. So we went out there, trudging through the scruby grass... and we saw 3 figures moving around dragging a sheep, now i love tazzys and have nothing agianst them killing my sheep becuase it was their land but my paw hated when they killed his sheep. Back to story. and i cried out in excitment " look emma " as she turned her head the 2 biggest ones (lokked to be a male and female) kinda made a roarish bark. like a tazzy devil. But way shorter. anyway, the biggest was darker, well his head was, and the 2nd to largest had a drooping pouch. she was prabably had pups. Well, she could hardly trot, and her mate (i think) stuck by her side. and the littlest was the funniest and had most character. when he saw that the other 2 had left him with the carcus he kinda pouted and had a hissy fit. 1st he just sat right on the sheep as if saying im not moving. then he started whining or more like chirping. but finally he dragged the carcus away. But i did notice that his striped were um... whats the word... bolder? and stockier. he was a light sandish color two.

    Well, like i said thank you so much. PLEASE let me know if you do get in photos.
    email: pattyandgrady@mindspring.com and everybody else you can send me stuff too, as long as it's not spam(tazzy photos.

    I believe that the Tazmanian Tigers may still exist. It is really sad that such an amazing animal may have become extinct by us humans. Right now I am watching a show that is about deaths on Fraiser Island, Australia and that Tazmanian Tigers had once lived there. The experts on this show said that the dingo's there killed off all the Tazmanian Tigers on that Island. I do not believe that because if that was true then, how have people had so many sightings of the beautiful creatures? It is like the case(s) of Big Foot... some people believe in it, and some don't.

    Many years ago I read all I could find about the tiger. Today I have starting reading about the thylacine again,
    photo's (Kevin Cameron & Karl E. - Col Baileys comment's on this where far more interessting than the technical disc. And how often do you in real life get a perfect shot of an animal in nature that moves.. even from proffs? not very often especialy not of a shy and difficault animal to find) and a short old movie 1973 (from mainland Australia really surpiced me) but tasmanian-tiger.com and the email book from "tigerman" convinced me that there still can be a few tigers left in around Tasmania and maybee on Australia.
    It look's very much like the old story from Europe about wolves, which are rare or eliminated in many countries.
    But good and reliable evidence like the tigermans book and the many sighthings every year, hopefully will find and proof the tiger excist before its too late when some of the habitats er destroyed or changed with other plants/animals.
    I will still keep my eyes on this website for more information and new sighthings in the future. Keep on the good work, one day all the work might worth it, when the evidence will appear.

    Fascinating site. I support your research and investigation 100%. New species are discovered every year. Why is it out of the question that one thought to be extinct might actually be rediscovered and confirmed as living? Seems absolutely logical to me. Thank goodness someone believes, otherwise no one might look. Without looking, what can we see - absolutely nothing. Wish I were there, I would help in your quest. One thought, we use motion activated cameras to take digital pictures of wildlife on our property. Have you tried setting these up in areas where the animal has been seen?

    By the way, are there existing DNA particles of the Tasmanian Tiger? I believe it would be rather interesting if there were. That is, if the bloody scientists ever get cloning figured out.

    Mark again

    Saturday, 14th October 2006 at 9:59 (AEST)


    G'day, everyone! I just wanted to say that I don't believe one way or the other for the tas tiger. How might we know that you all are not a lot of nature fanatics who just want to cease the logging and destruction of the forests? I am a strong believer that if there IS a Tasmanian Tiger out their somewhere, it should have been found a long time ago. I mean, think when the official last tiger died? Just something to chew on. I support you all in that you stand up for what you believe in, so keep up the good work on that aspect.

    tasmanian tigers are not extinct i believe that they have adapted to human intervention before thier 'extinction' they were coastal and prefferd plains but with all these sightings they are all in scrub with the thylacine low and slinking that is why i believe they are alive.

    I love this sight, and when i graduate, from my degree i am gonna go searhing for. I always feel something stir inside of me, when i talk to others about the thylacine, they seem to rid my shyness away in public. One thought though...if the tas tiger wass found, would that stop the destruction (logging) of the old forests of tas, currently being shipped out for about a aus$1 for a tonne?

    Hi Nature Lovers of the World

    What a fantastic site I ahve stumbled across. Top marks not only for the site but for the great work you are doing.
    I have believed for a long time of the Tassie Tigers existence but sadly am fearful that as we continue the rape of our bush and land we will lose many creatures great and small. Shame on the greedy people who continue the destruction of our earth. While we call it ours it is, in truth, only on loan and belongs not only to our generations but all future generations.

    Keep up the good work every"1". Together many "1"s become strong. Never be afraid to speak up in defence of the defenceless and may Angels walk beside you always.

    September 26 2006 I reckon I saw a thylacene in the drylandsfsouth Australia. I failed to photograph it because It was not a possibility in my mind and I drove on for an hour before I realized what I'd seen. Too long to relate all of the encounter but I am just registeringmy possible sighting. I spoke to an authority at the SA museum and I was told that several sightingsa year arereported in SA. I would like to return to the area with the knowledge I have of its behavior. For some reason I cannot correct this text so I shan't writemore for now.

    Just a quick note to let people know that I have conducted a lengthy analysis on Klaus Emmerichs' 2005 photographs of a thylacine in Tasmania.

    Klaus and I have been in discussions for a few weeks now.

    The photos are copyright and should not be published anywhere on the web, although they were published in print-form in Tasmania in April 2006.

    Those interested in the text of my analysis may view it at www.wherelightmeetsdark.com

    Haveing heard the story of this magnificent creature and haveing actual photographs of this marsupial I hope that this creature is still alive but doubtful. To the best of my knowledge the last creature died in captivity. If this creature is extinct we did to it. We have no one to blame but ourselves. To clone it I say yes. If we can bring it back we should.

    I belive that it is possible that the tasmanian tiger is still alive. There are places it could still be living in. I have mixed feelings about clonig it though. It would be good to see the wonderful exstinct creature although, bringing it back could spell desaster for many other species that have grown use to living life without the tasmanian tiger.I do like the tasmanian tiger, but I think we should focus on saving the endangered animals that are still alive, like tigers, wolves, whales and other animales that our planet still needs.
    Thank you for listening.

    Truly tragic when we lose a species. It is somewhat irresponsible to blame "Europeans" totally for the loss of the tiger or the moa. Polynesian settlers actually settled on New Zealand and Tasmania, often burning the brush to drive the animals out. That is how they hunted. That is what made the moa extinct, and in effect that made the Haast's Eagle extinct. Sad but a fact of life. Now it is up to our generation to mend the ways of ALL of our ancestors.

    Let us not forget that this Thursday 7th marks 70th anniversary of the death of "Benjaimin" the last proven survivor, a victim of neglect, and continue to hope that this animal has indeed survived. For those wanting more information, the best site I have found on the animal can be found via the Marsupial Ring, containing much information, pictures and the Fleay films

    I think that the cloning of the Tasmanian tiger is a wounderful idea. This is so wounderful cuz this way people can see the tasmanian tiger and be able to make documentarys of the great creatur... if the clonning doesnt work I know that there still are some deep within the tasmanian forest.

    Hello to the friends of the Tasmanian Tiger all over the world!!
    I am very surprised that there is a homepage just about this beautiful but officially not existing animal.
    And I am very happy to be not alone with my hope that - perhaps - there is still one or two T.Tigers who exists somewhere.
    I live in Germany and I'm interested in all that animals, which are killed by mankind only because they are disturbing there lives or eating there food like cows, sheep, chicken or other good things. Or because they seem to be dangerous for us. It is such a pity!!!
    Please carry on with this wonderful homepage. Let's hope for good news for our dear Tasmanian Tigers!
    Bye-bye till next time!

    hiya, id just like to say that the the tazmanian tiger is the most magnificent animal i have ever seen, well, in the pictures anyway - it would be one of my wishes to see the tazmanian tiger in real life and not 2d on photo's of it in captivaty - behind bars in a most un-reasonable habitat. This creature is one of the many animals that have become extinct due to the actions of one of the most feared animals in the animal kingdom- humans. i only wish that this one example of extinction can help us to realise what we are driving out of evolution

    New about the tigers when I was small have always had an affinity with them. I simply refuse to believe that they are exctinct what have we got if we dont have dreams and hopes that they are still there? Roll on the day that we are proved right. keep up the good work.

    Any one interested in researching the history and extinction of the thylacine i strongly recommend reading the book by Robert Paddle called - " the last tasmainian tiger" - published by Cambridge Univeristy Press 2000 - www.cambridge.org The book is the most complete and up to date examination of the behaviour, social history and extinction of the thylacine. The book is very powerful, he does extensive archival research to contstruct a new integrated record of the life-span and development of the species. He challanges many conventional ideas about the species and the causes of their extinction. A magnificant work!

    What a great web site! thanks guys...great to see others care about our native species. I have just being researching tassie tigers and am appalled at the cruel treatment this unique creature endured early lasaryt century - i am almost ashamed to say i am Aussie, and now that it is obvious the speciecs still exists, our goverment is ignoring this fact for political and monetary gain, will we ever learn!! Keep up the good work, i pray enough people will protest the government and the speices will once again roam the tassie bush in safety and glory!

    The 'Tiger' is not a mythical beast like your Nessie or Bigfoot, it actually existed! It may still, hopefully, exist and it is this mystery I would love solved for sure. Thank you to 'The Tigerman' for renewing my hope. Maybe one day I will be lucky enough to meet this disciple, or even luckier if I catch a glimpse of a 'Son of Benjamin'. That would really make the hairs stand up on the back of my neck and put a smile on my face. Thanks for the web-page and good luck.

Then, the prophecy will be complete! (This entry contains book 5/6 spoilers!) Boo Harry Potter! Yay Tassie Tigers!

On this webiste and many others it says that the Tasmanian tiger still exsists. The article i read was written November 18th 2005, just recently. If someone could please email me back to help me with my confusion that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Ever since I first read about the Tasmanian tiger, I've wanted to see one in it's natural habitat, alive and kicking. I think it's gross that the government of Tasmania is more interrrested in destroying that habitat than in persuing the verification of the survival of these unique and amaising animals. What will posterity say when the tigers are really all gone and they find out that something could have been done about it and wasn't?!
