Footage of the last known moving images of the now extinct thylacine has been uncovered. Shot in 1935 for the travelogue Tasmania the Wonderland, the clip shows Benjamin, the last known surviving thylacine at a Hobart Zoo, who died 18 months after the footage was captured. Previously, footage of Benjamin shot in 1933 was believed to be the final moving images of a living thylacine.

Help save the greater glider

An estimated 26 per cent of the greater glider population in East Gippsland, Victoria, was killed in the 2019–2020 bushfire catastrophe, when more than
1.5 million ha of Victoria’s bushland burned. This is a devastating blow to the population of the already threatened species.

The Victorian National Parks Association hopes to secure habitat for the surviving greater gliders by launching a campaign to protect Wombat State Forest, the westernmost part of the species’ range. Being designated state forest, it can be logged at any time. But the campaign hopes to protect the forest by proposing that it be turned into a new national park.

Make a difference. Please donate today. Funds raised will help save and support our greater glider population.
