Still Waters Posted March 22 #1 Share Posted March 22 (IP: Staff) · An international group of researchers led by the University of Tasmania has taken a fresh look into the disappearance, and conceivable reappearance, of the Tasmanian tiger thylacine. The last thylacine confirmed killed in the wild was in 1930, and the last specimen in captivity died at a Tasmanian zoo in 1936. Since then, sightings have regularly persisted across Tasmania, though no captured creatures or images have been offered to prove its survival. With the possibility that the creature had persisted well past its addition and eventual removal from the endangered species list with an official designation of "extinct," the researchers wanted to model the most likely last refuges of the iconic predator. In the paper, "Resolving when (and where) the Thylacine went extinct," researchers modeled 1,237 reported sightings from 1910 to the present day. https://phys.org/news/2023-03-tentatively-tasmanian-tiger-extinction-late.html Resolving when (and where) the Thylacine went extinct https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0048969723014948? 2 1 1 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
