According to the official assessment and report by the IUCN, the Thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus) is classified as "Extinct". The IUCN Red List provides this justification for the assessment: "The last known Thylacine died in Hobart Zoo in 1936. Despite numerous, including contemporary, reports of its existence, and several organised searches (e.g. Smith 1980; see SEWPaC 2012), there has been no irrefutable evidence of its survival."
