They need to find one, and friggin' clone it, constantly, so it can survive, raise it in captivity, except in an realistic envoirenment,(SP?)so it can breed succsessfully!

They have attempted to clone the Thylacine, with no success, unfortunately. I've heard rumor that they did clone one, but it died not too long after. I am not sure if that rumor is true, however.

The way man has hunted animals to extinction is terible. Just think of what we could have learned from these poor creatures. The world is a poorer place without them in it.

There may be a couple still living in the remotest part of Australia/Tasmania hiding from any human contact (you can't blame them if that's the case!). Just look at the coelacanth, scientists that they went extinct 65 million years ago but fishermen catch some every few years it seems... I'm just saying stranger then have happened then 'extinct' creators being (re)discovered.
