Saving our Species and Threatened Species Day

Threatened Species Day is held on 7 September each year to commemorate the death of the last remaining Tasmanian tiger (also known as the thylacine) at Hobart Zoo in 1936 and to focus on how to protect our threatened species in the future. It is a day to celebrate our success stories and ongoing threatened species recovery work.

The Office of the Environment and Heritage is committed to the Saving our Species program and encourages everyone in NSW to do something to celebrate National Threatened Species Day each year. We offer the opportunity to share your stories, events and activities on our EngageHQ page, and have a variety of activities, lesson plans and resources available to download.

You can learn more about the Saving our Species program and find out what threatened species live near you by visiting the links on this page. There are activities year round where you can support the endangered plants and animals in your community, with Saving our Species, at a national park or with our partners.
