At dawn we boarded our helicopter and headed out from Launceston towards the west coast south of Macquarie Harbor and along the south west conservation area (see map above). This remote inaccessible coastline features numerous bays and coves.
Animal prints of all sizes could be clearly seen on many of the beaches. Historically thylacines enjoyed hunting along the north west coast beaches. Have a small number maintained a presence along the inaccessible south west coast beaches unseen from human eyes?
