* The Australian Rare Fauna Research Association (ARFRA) has been researching the possible existence of the Tasmanian Tiger or Thylacine, as well as big cats, in Australia since 1984. To date the ARFRA has conducted over two thousand field research investigations, logged nearly 1,500 high quality Victorian sightings of these creatures, and compiled a large collection of data on the subject. The ARFRA is always seeking reports of unusual animal sightings, ancient, recent and current, from anywhere in the Australian region, and has the largest database on Australian cryptozoological subjects of any organization in the world.
* Beast of Buderim collects reports of sightings of Thylacines over the last few years in the Buderim area (Sunshine Coast, Queensland).
