The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) recently launched a new hunt for the species, which was once endemic to Australia.

Noted. CFZ Zoological Director Richard Freeman said he has "no doubt" the species still exists, in reference to the Tazmanian Tiger. Very interesting to know.
Thank You Cher.

It would be nice if they do still exist. Boy, the 100 Most Threatened Species at the bottom of the page was depressing. Every one caused by man ~ mostly habitat loss due to farming, deforestation, degradation and urban development.
Some species have only a few breeding pairs. Humans have about 5 billion TOO many breeding pairs!!!!

Perhaps there is always hope, that would be wonderful if there are even but a few that have survived.

Very true, Barbara D, not to mention corporations as well which is another human invention but they seem to often be greed unbridled.

I hope that they do exist but I hope even more that we never find out for sure, that would be the only way to keep them safe.

Very interesting article! I hope that they're not extinct by some miracle although I do have my doubts since these animals were thought to have been completely decimated by Australian hunters! So sad that so many hunters don't seem to care about whether a species is wiped out by them but seem to care more about their "presumed right" to shoot and kill with little regard for the long term survival of a species!
