Allowing dingoes to return to Sturt National Park in NSW, Australia and researching the results may be the key to managing the future of dingoes and many threatened native mammals, University of Sydney researchers believe.
Stopping dingo control measures such as baiting and fencing could increase net profit for cattle grazing enterprises – that's the surprising result from new University of Adelaide research.
(Phys.org) —Limiting the dingo and wild dog population has no negative effect on wildlife, according to new research.
How Australian naturalists manage dingoes is both a longstanding and current hot topic on that continent.
(Phys.org) —The dingo has been classified as a distinct Australian animal following research that sheds new light on its defining physical characteristics.
Poisoning of dingoes - the top predators in the Australian bush - has a deleterious effect on small native mammals such as marsupial mice, bandicoots and native rodents, a UNSW-led study shows.
New research suggests that unless drastic action is taken to control dingo incursions, rangeland production of wool and sheep meat in Western Australia will disappear within 30 to 40 years.
Urgent action is needed to protect large carnivores, such as the Australian dingo, from the "unforseen" environmental consequences that will accompany further declines in their numbers, an international team fo ecologist ...
