National Threatened Species Day - Do you have an event planned?

07 Sep 2018 - 07 Sep 2018
Cape York

We'd love to include your Cape York event to recognise National Threatened Species Day on our Cape York Calendar. 

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.

Call out to all schools, businesses, organisations and individuals on Cape York! We'd like to help you to promote your event to acknowledge National Threatened Species Day.

Please give us a call on 1300 132 262 or send an email to (and include a great photo) so we can promote your event on our calendar and on social media.

Soon you will be able to view photos, videos and interactive media relating to projects and events. Check back soon for more information.
