Hereâ€™s a site with films of the tasmanian tiger, the thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus). It was driven to extinction in the 1930â€™s.
Thereâ€™s interest in sequencing the genome of the tasmanian devil with an eye toward eventual cloning. Reconstructing a genome of an extinct species is currently not technically feasible. So far they have been able to clone short DNA segments from preserved tissue.
