A 'tiger wolf', or more properly known as the Tasmanian Tiger, or Thylacine, was not a canine, it was a marsupial that lived in Australia, but went extinct in 1936, though some people believe they may still be alive. They were a rather unusual animal, but they were not canines.

There are several ways to increase the population of an endangered species. The biggest thing is finding out why they became endangered in the first place and going on from there. With some species, it might mean a protected area/habitat; for others a captive breeding program and release project will help. Sometimes a limit on "take or removal" is necessary and then the limitations can be removed when the population rises. Sometimes, it might not be possible-depending on the species and how close to extinction it already has become. It all depends on the species and how important it is to the general public for them to remain on this earth.
