Despite hundreds of reported sightings no conclusive evidence has been provided that the Tasmanian Tiger is alive.

In 2005, two German tourists to Tasmania, Klaus Emmerichs and Birgit Jansen claimed to have taken pictures of a live Tasmanian tiger. The zoo closed down the following year.

Bailey recalled venturing into Tasmania's dense scrub, smothered in tea tree oil and waiting for hours on end, "relying on intuition" in the hope of coming into contact with the animal. For many years, there were only a few black-and-white reels — with a combined running time of about 3 minutes — of the now-extinct thylacine, also known as the Tasmanian tiger. This “new” clip was recorded in 1935 as part of a travelogue called Tasmania the Wonderland, but it was only digitalized and released by the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) this month. All of these species went extinct millions of years ago – except for the Thylacine, also known as the Tasmanian Tiger or Tasmanian Wolf, which persevered into modern times. Countless other species, including the leadbeater’s possum (Gymnobelideus leadbeateri) and the orange-bellied parrot (Neophema chrysogaster), are on the brink of extinction. A Victoria farmer, Peter Groves, made the news after allegedly spotting a Thylacine while walking near Clifton Springs on January 4, 2019. Weighing approximately 25kg, the Thylacine was around 60cm tall at the shoulder, with a body roughly 115cm long and a 50-65cm long tail. He didn't see stripes, but he was about 150 meters (492 foot) away -- likely too far to have seen that level of detail.

In a 21-second newsreel clip, Benjamin, a thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus) who lived at Beaumaris Zoo in Tasmania, paces the length of his concrete enclosure as two men rattle the chain-link barrier. In Tasmania, the Thylacine was most predominant along the north and east coast, and in the midland plains region. "Indeed [I] asked if there were known to be 'large cats' in that area.".

Reported Tasmanian tiger sightings. In April 2017, another motorist recounted a cat-like creature running across the road in front of his vehicle travelling at 100 kilometres per hour on the Murchison Highway. "I am accustomed to coming across most animals working on rural farms ... and I have never come across an animal anything close to what I saw in Tasmania that day," the report read.
