threaten01_400September 7th. Threatened Species Day is a national day in Australia held each year on 7 September to commemorate the death of the last remaining Tasmanian tiger (also known as the thylacine) at Hobart Zoo in 1936. It is a time to reflect on what happened in the past and how we can protect our threatened species in the future. A day to celebrate our success stories and ongoing threatened species recovery work.

Threatened species are an important component of biodiversity. Once they become extinct they are gone forever. Today most species become threatened because of habitat destruction and the invasion of non-native species. With effective management, however, almost all threatened species can be conserved for future generations.

To effectively manage threatened species in NSW, we need to be aware of how our activities could increase their risk of extinction and to support efforts to secure the species in the wild. National Threatened Species Day is celebrated across the country to raise awareness of the plight of many species but also to highlight the amazing work that people are doing to save them.

We encourage everyone, whether you are a scientist, an artist, a business person, a sportsperson, an educator, work for local government or just love plants and animals, to do something to celebrate National Threatened Species Day and our unique threatened flora and fauna.

You can help raise awareness about the plight of threatened species by planning an activity such as some bush regeneration in your local area or holding a talk at your club or school or holding an art exhibition. You can also join together with other people interested in nature via the activities around the state. All we need from you is enthusiasm, initiative, and a willingness to share a common message
