National Threatened Species Day
September 7-8, 2021 N/A
On the night of 7 September 1936, the last Tasmanian tiger died in Hobart Zoo. With the death of this animal the thylacine species became extinct.
In 1996, on the sixtieth anniversary of the last Tasmanian tiger’s death, 7 September was declared ‘National Threatened Species Day’ — a time to reflect on what happened to the thylacine and how similar fates could await other native plants and animals unless appropriate action is taken.
National Threatened Species Day highlights the past and how we can protect Queensland’s threatened plants and animals into the future, while also celebrating species success stories and ongoing threatened species recovery work.
Sunday 7th September 2014 is National Threatened Species Day. Find out what is being done to help threatened species in Queensland.
