Wow! This is such great news! The thylacine, the Tasmanian tiger, a marsupial carnivore, might not be extinct! So often it's the other case, and so often it's the loss of habitat due to human activities that are the cause. This is such a great animal, and it was thought to be extinct some 8 decades ago. The thylacine is sort of the polar opposite of a koala or a wombat. The idea that a rare animal is extinct stops lots of people from looking, probably a good thing, and in some very remote part of Tasmania it's quite possible a population still exists based on DNA tests on feces. TPP has seen a lot of great animals in Australia, a side benefit of doing rainforest research: platypus (lots), echidna, cassowary (truly impressive in the field - convinces you that birds are dinosaurs), tree kangaroos, crocodiles, and more. But he's never been way down south to Tasmania, now it's on my bucket list.
