Voyager Lecture with Ron Smith: Tasmanian Tiger

March 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$15

Ron Smith will unveil the mysteries of the tragic demise…and possible revival of the Tasmanian Tiger.

It has stripes like a tiger, but is not a cat. It has the galloping lope of a hyena, but it’s not a canine. The Australians call it the Tasmanian Tiger. Biologists call it a Thylacine. It was the world’s largest carnivorous marsupial. Join Ron Smith for an examination of Australia’s unique collection of remarkable animals, and an investigation into the extinction of the Thylacine. The last one apparently died in a Hobart zoo in September of 1936. Yet, there have been many alleged sightings, and some have great credibility. Perhaps the “Tassie Tiger” is not extinct! If it is, could the species be cloned back into existence? That brings up another provocative question…

 

Should an extinct animal be brought back to life?

You won’t want to miss this quest to learn more about the fate of the Thylacine.

An informal social gathering begins at 6 pm. Cost is $15, including refreshments.

(Note: The Voyager Lecture Series is sponsored by Voyager Wealth Advisors, Inc., Cache Valley Bank, and State Farm Insurance Agent Sherry McGhee.)
