American company plans to revive Tasmanian tiger

If successful, the project will introduce Tasmanian tigers in a controlled environment in tasmanian private lands, eventually returning them to the wild.

The team thinks reviving top predators could rebalance the state’s ecosystem.

They also hope the project will have a more far-reaching impact helping to address the extinction crisis.

Pask and his colleagues hope to be able to address concerns about the health of animals through genome sequencing of 80 to 100 individuals.
