Hi Guys
First of all can I say I really appreciate the work you are doing as it is very credible and like your scientific and sceptical approach. I have been interested in the Thylacine for a number of years and I like many would love the notion of a small number of taz tigers to still be at large.
It has crossed my mind that the state government gave protective status to the taz tiger shortly before the last known thylacine died in the zoo. Do you think this adds validity to the possible chances of others having survived as I assume the would have been no financial gain and risk of prosecution for the trappers. therefore the very few that could have survived would not have actively been hunted. Just a thought but wondered if that could add weight to the very slim chance that a small isolated community still lives on to this day.

Thank you! Thylacine awareness! A worthy passion. Great networking. Great graphic logo, too.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone tried a wombat in distress call a wombat in a cage and a game trail camera set out for a thylacine? Reconyx Hyperfires are no glow 1080P high-definition resolution and 3.1-megapixel images. Triggers in a 5th of a second. Expensive at roughly 600 usd, but really great cameras. Moultrie makes another cheaper alternative around 150 usd. You got the three things a predator looks for, live pray, sound, and an easy kill. I use a similar technique for trying to figure out where the coyote population has sky rocketed on my property and where they need to be thinned out, only I use a rabbit call and a motorized stuffed rabbit in a cage....with rabbit scents.

Some of the stuff is pretty convincing. It would be great if they are still out there!

I love thylacines. I'd like to hope that they are still out there, or can soon be once more. Thank you for caring about Australia's wildlife and ecosystems, And thank you for continuing hope and research and education on the thylacine.

(the last post, was also me by the way)
Also, wanted to add: In a nutshell, I believe in the Thylacine. I use to align them into the "what ifs" with the Lochness Monster. Though the latter would be cool to exist, it seems less likely. This site is showing that the Thylacine is very much real and alive. It's probably a good thing that so many people still deny it. Its proven existence could cause problems for it if the wrong people want to find it.

I hope it stays safe and continues to reproduce in the wild.

Please keep doing what you're doing. I'm only 18 but ever since I was a child, I've been mystified by these creatures. I love how primitive they look, they're so odd. But beautiful, and truly unique. I use to swear they were alive to family members, even though I had or knew of no proof. So seeing this is giving me such hope.
I just hope that if they are found, you guys do everything you can to make sure they are protected. Not like captured and kept in captivity just to be "safe" but to be protected in their natural habitat. It's amazing that they've managed to live so long, even when claimed to be "extinct". This means that they're are incredibly intelligent and clever. They deserve to be left alone in the little wild they have left.
But what you guys are doing, I agree with. I feel like though many might want to hurt them, even unintentionally, if it becomes world news that they're proven to be alive, there will also be many from all over that will want to protect them and make sure they never be claimed "extinct" again. And it would be nice to know that they are alive. With this site, I'm actually beginning to believe again that they do exist. That belief disappeared as I grew up and decided to accept the reality that they're gone.
But maybe this creature is just smarter than us, and smarter than other animals. That's why they bolt from every camera, and have remained undetected for so long. And maybe there are enough people around the surviving ones that want to keep it safe and undetected.

I'm just a college student from the US. Never been to Australia, especially not Tasmania, but it would definitely be a dream of mine to see a wild Thylacine. It always has been. Keep up the good work and keep those creatures safe!

Keep searching, I know there are plenty of people out there who are very passionate about the thylacine. I hope to see one whether it be photo, video, or in person, before I die.

We Humans are the true pest of Nature, We exterminated this Unique Animal.
