The WLMD is has moved from the .com address to .com.au

This is a labour of love, so the migration will go slowly.

Start browsing right right where you are. This new site will link to the old site for anything I haven't moved across yet. (smile)

The new engine running WLMD is much easier to use and publishing articles is much faster. Watch this space for a continually growing library of resources and information relating to Examining the Evidence for Rare Fauna - especially Tasmanian tigers.
