The Thylacine Archive
There is a great deal of archival material pertaining to the thylacine in various museum collections around the world (especially Tasmania). As well as historical newspaper clippings, sightings/reports etc. I hope to make much of this freely available online in the future. The Thylacine Museum website is an indispensable resource, even for veteran thylacine researchers.
The REPAD taxon profile on the thylacine is currently incomplete, but contains much useful information. While our Facebook Group the Tasmanian Tiger Archives has over 1300 members, and by far the most historical content than any other group.
