Dr. Alan Wilton (1953-2011) Prominent Australian Geneticist, Assoc. Professor of the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences at the University of NSW. Dr. Wilton devoted much of his academic life in studying the ancestry and significance of the dingo in Australia.
“ The dingo is possibly the oldest breed of dog in the world.”
“ The pure dingo in Australia could be extinct within 50 years.”
“ Born 2008 destroyed 2011.”
“..they are the only australian native classed as vermin, how sad that such a noble and loving companion is now regarded as a pest, it is not just cruel but a betrayal of the highest order” Unknown.
“Dingoes have been held in a time capsule since they were brought to Australia 5,000 years ago and since then have been running around the continent,” The Times.
The last pure Dingo populations remaining in coastal Australia are probably in the national parks between the Great Dividing Range and the east coast, and on Fraser Island.” Qld Museum.
The situation was disgusting and an International disgrace. 70% of the 100 to 120 dogs left on the Island were malnourished, the population could be wiped out within years.” Ray Revill. Former Island Ranger.

Fund specific research trips to the Island, with the assistance of expert volunteers.
Fund urgently needed external and independent scientists and veterinarians to assist in analysing data, including incident reports, tag registers, and necropsy reports.
We need urgent figures on prey availability, analysis done on DNA/scat to determine dingoes’ current diet and sustainability of food/prey sources.
Detailed research on visitor attitudes and their understanding of the dingo behaviour must be undertaken in order to develop clear educational material. This will inevitably improve human/dingo interaction.
A wildlife Care Centre is urgently needed, and a Cultural Centre is a long term goal.
To achieve these goals we need assistance from the public

FRASER ISLAND CARE CENTRE PLEDGE BROCHURE: We now have available a brochure regarding a proposed Care Centre for Fraser Island..It is unacceptable that there is presently no facility to treat sick or injured animals. The Minister is amenable to this facility, but we need to provide a 10 year business plan and convince the government this is a viable enterprise.
Therefore we are asking for assistance from the Community. We are asking for a PLEDGE, whether it be services, equipment or cash donations. You can print this brochure or order copies directly from our Secretary. Thank you all for your support.
