A highly-anticipated research project which just might provide proof that the Tasmanian Tiger still exists is scheduled to begin later this month.
Spearheaded by a pair of professors from Australia's James Cook University, the impending scientific survey sparked a flurry of interest when it was announced earlier this year.
Alongside a bevy of media interest, the news also resulted in numerous thylacine reports being submitted to the scientists behind the project.
"We have now a fairly extensive geographic database of 'sightings' of thylacines, a few of which stand out as being really interesting," professor Bill Laurance told the Brisbane Times.
