Jennifer Parkhurst, President of the National Dingo Preservation and Recovery Program, has been studying dingoes for many years, particularly the pure breed on Fraser Island, and unpacks the mystery of dingoes.
The Fraser Island Dingo Management Strategy review

Chris Johnson, Professor of Wildlife Conservation at the University of Tasmania, outlines the pros and cons of the latest review of the Fraser Island Dingo Management Strategy (FIDMS). Professor Johnson had a role in assessing the FIDMS review, which was undertaken by an environmental consultant. The whole strategy is about the conservation of dingoes on Fraser Island and the minimisation of risk of dingo attacks on humans
Out of the doghouse: new directions for FIDMS

Out of the Doghouse The Queensland state government has accepted the recently revised FIDMS that clearly recognises that dingoes are an integral part of the Fraser Island ecosystem and is an essential part of the balance of that ecosystem, a conservation recognition that underpins future directions. Associate Professor Darryl Jones, from Griffith University, discusses some exciting research that is planned for the Strategy.
Paws for thought

Rob Appleby outlines some of his doctoral research on dingoes in the World Heritage National Park of Fraser Island. As part of his research Rob Appleby used infra-red lighting technology to film dingoes at a distance (up to 100 metres), lighting that the dingoes could not detect, hence enhancing the observational research into their complex and often very subtle behaviours and interactions.
Face value

Professor Brian Lovell, from the University of Queensland, is an expert in face recognition software and explains how such software can be used to recognise individual dingoes.
Dogged determination

Dr Bradley Smith, from the Appleton Institute (CQUniversity), explains some of his work on the cognition and behaviour of captive dingoes.
