Benjamin the Thylacine or Tasmanian tiger, became extinct over 3,000 years ago on the mainland of Australia. On 7 September 1936 only two months after the species was granted protected status, 'Benjamin', the last known thylacine, died from exposure at the Beaumaris Zoo in Hobart. It is estimated there were around 5000 thylacines in Tasmania at the time of European settlement.

 The Wombeyan Caves was a biodiversity hot spot with evidence of so many species found, including the Thylacine in 1896.  Devils and thylacines would have been the dominant carnivores of this region over the last 50,000 years, being replaced by canids (dogs dingos) at the time of their mainland extinction.
Benjamin Thylacine represents all those species that have disappeared from Australia. My heart believes they are not extinct, just very shy and hard to find.

 "I saw him last night just out of reach, his shadow was there in the corner of my eye, a rusty coloured striped blur" 

Dianna has designed a range of local animals either real, extinct or an First Nations myth and they now are affordable garden art. Wombat, Koala, Kangaroo, Quoll, Thylacine, Drop bear, Bunyip.   

Initial designs were Funded a community arts project by the Shared Spaces programme, a NSW Government initiative to Upper Lachlan Shire Council. The target was to get motorists speeding thru our local small town of Taralga to slow down and stop and look around. So sharing roads with cards and wildlife.
