ResourcesConservation and management of dingoes on K’gari (Fraser Island)

Summary: K’gari (Fraser Island), is a World Heritage area off the coast of Queensland, Australia with an isolated population of 100-200 dingoes of national interest and conservation concern. This is an ongoing program of research into diet, health, movements, breeding, and the effects of management decisions on the ecology and conservation of dingoes on K’gari. Current dingo management practices on the island focus primarily on areas where dingoes come into conflict with humans. Understanding their diet and feeding ecology is fundamental to the better management and conservation of dingoes and the resolution of human-dingo conflicts in a high-visitation place.
