Wild dogs, including dingoes, may cause substantial losses to livestock. They may also have significant impacts upon the distribution and abundance of native wildlife. However, there is an expectation that the dingo should be conserved because it arrived in Australia prior to European settlement. Furthermore, wild dogs in general may play an important role in preventing some fauna from becoming over abundant. This policy seeks to find a balance between these variables for the management of wild dogs on lands acquired or reserved under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.
