GIS and Wildlife Management


On September 7, 1936 the last thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus aka Tasmanian tiger/wolf) died at the Hobart Zoo in Tasmania. Fifty years later the entire species was declared extinct. Today is remembered in Australia as "National Threatened Species Day." In more recent times, throughout the world, many humans understand and value the importance of biodiversity and protecting wildlife.
