Actually, this is a great idea.
TASMANIAN tiger hunter Mike Williams is confident evidence of a living thylacine will emerge sooner rather than later because of the growing popularity of crash cameras in cars.
Mr Williams, who led an international team of naturalists searching for the thylacine last year, has urged Tasmanian motorists to invest in the technology.
He said Tasmanian trappers had provided him with extremely reliable accounts of seeing multiple thylacines in the mid-1980s.
Many other sightings have been from motorists driving around the bush at dusk and night, including one from only 16 months ago.
The thylacine, aka Tasmanian tiger, has been labeled extinct since the 1930s.
I’m concerned that the quality may not be good enough to be able to tell exactly what animal it is and there may be mistaken IDs. And, unless you get everyone to do it, it probably won’t be providing much data since supposed sightings are rather rare. But, it only takes a few to see if there really are remaining animals (highly doubtful) or if we are just misindentifying dogs.
