    Ghost of the Tasmanian Tiger: Scientists Investigate Sightings
    March 31, 2017 | Article
    "...Researchers will employ 50 camera traps, & their survey is expected to begin in April, once... necessary permits from private landowners [are received]. The hunt for thylacines also offers scientists an opportunity to investigate the status of other vulnerable or threatened wildlife in the area.

    "Regardless of which species are detected, the survey will provide important data on the status of mammal species on Cape York, where wildlife populations have evidently been undergoing severe population declines in recent years."
