Zoologists hunting Tasmanian Tiger declare "no doubt" species is still alive - The Guardian

Doing a bit of research on possible thylacine sightings, I came across an article by The Guardian regarding British naturalists claiming that the tiger might still be alive. Or more like, there is no doubt that they are.
Back in 2013, The Guardian reported on a team of investigators from "The Centre of Fortean Zoology" that was currently in Tasmania, hunting down clues to prove the thylacine still existed. The Guardian went to saying that the group claimed to have gathered compelling evidence, proving it is still alive in remote parts of North-West Tasmania.

I'm skeptical, myself, about this, considering this same group seem to have claimed they found evidence of a mysterious Indonesian ape that walks on two legs, but it doesn't hurt to take a look at what they had to say about it.

While it is possible they no longer exist in Tasmania, I am, however, convinced they are still alive in other parts of the Australian country, with many reports centering around Victoria and other parts of NSW. Who knows? Maybe there is a small grouping in Tasmania that have learned to hide very well from people purposely trying to find them.

Edit: Among my exhausted searching, I realized it said 2013, not 2011. I apologize for this mistake.
