James Malley, a local dairy farmer-come-naturalist,
and I, have been looking for the thylacine for the past 6
years or so. In that time we have spent about two years
each on field trips, mostly in the northern half of Tasmania
and on the south-west coast. Our major sponsors have been
the Australian Conservation Foundation, the "Australian"
newspaper, the Science and Industry Endowment Fund and the
British Tobacco Company. Since June this year, with the
assistance of Dr. Robert Brown, we have been conducting
what we intend to be an exhaustive investigation of northeastern
Tasmania while investigating any leads that may come
from elsewhere in the State.
