Foreward by Col Bailey
The possible continued existence of an extant thylacine population, particularly in South-Eastern Victoria, is clearly and graphically displayed in this well documented website. Murray McAllister and I have been corresponding for several years now in the course of our thylacine research, and I have been most impressed by his enthusiasm, dedication and staunch determination in seeking to collect sound and conclusive evidence of thylacine activity throughout the Gippsland area of Victoria. I am of the firm opinion that there is every possibility of conclusive proof eventually emerging that will, sooner or later put the issue beyond doubt that the thylacine or Tasmanian tiger has survived not only in Tasmania, but on mainland Australia as well. Thylacine researchers such as Murray McAllister are proving invaluable in their on-going research towards achieving this, and I wish him every success in the future.
