Seventy years ago today (September 7th 1936) the last known (captive) Tasmanian Tiger known as “Benjamin” died.

Alleged sighting have been reported every since, several this year in fact, but even after numerous searches and at least one $1,000,000 dollar (Australian) reward, no solid evidence has ever been presented to back up the sightings.

It’s said that the Tasmanian Tiger is possibly the most likely of all extinct creatures to make a surprise comeback from the grave, and I would imagine there isn’t a Cryptozologist in the world who wouldn’t want to be the one to rediscover it.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ā€™90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.

    To read or hear about extinction is very very sad. It is irreversible loss and it is forever. Forest line definitions and protection of ecosystems must be enforced, protected and policed internationally by watchdogs such as Greenpeace, WWF, WSPA,…etc and harsh penalties and sanctions against the violators is necessary… this is something we owe to humanity
