Threatened Species Day at Taronga Western Plains

Description

Threatened Species Day is a national day held each year in September to commemorate the death of the last remaining Tasmanian tiger (also known as the thylacine) at Hobart Zoo in 1936. It is a time to reflect on what happened in the past and how we can protect our threatened species in the future. At Taronga Western Plains Zoo, it is a day for us to celebrate our conservation success stories and partnerships and ongoing threatened species recovery work.
