So I'm back from Tasmania. A wonderfully vast and varied place, and I've never seen so many hawthorn trees in my life. It’s the main European tree you see in the green fields and hedgerows for miles when you drive west from Launceston.

|Wilf Batty and the last (recorded) kill of a Thylacine |
at Mawbanna, 1930. We met Wilf's nephew accidently
in a café while we were there, and interviewed him. The gun
in this photo is still in the family.
The CFZ are not interested in making money from any footage, photos or any kind of evidence of the discovery of a cryptid or extinct animal. Our intention in finding the Thylacine is due to a love and the preservation of the animals and their habitat. We do not plan to 'trap' the animal in any way (snares and traps are illegal in Tasmania), it's all for science and zoology, and our evidence will be free for all to see. See The Centre for Fortean Zoology's aim and intention.
If you have any sightings (or know anyone who has) of Tasmanian Tigers in Tasmania or on mainland Australia, do not hesitate to contact CFZ Australia.
