About this book

Produced by the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, Tasmania, Australia, to coincide with their new exhibit, this book examines the tragic consequences of European settlement on this now extinct mammal, through objects, photographs and documents in the museum's collection.

On 7 September 1936, the last known thylacine, or Tasmanian Tiger, died in the Hobart Zoo. Ironically, almost eight weeks prior, the species had been given full legal protection by the Tasmanian Government. What was the thylacine and what became of it? A handful of photos and some old film footage, stories and recollections, together with a few treasured museum specimens are all that survive of this remarkable and misunderstood animal. The exhibition includes thylacine remains from the QVMAG collection not seen before, as well as historical photographs and objects and stories about this remarkable and misunderstood animal.
