Wild dog policy
This policy addresses the management of wild dogs and the conservation of dingoes on lands reserved under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.
The policy seeks to:
- minimise the impact of wild dogs emanating from lands acquired or reserved under the NPW Act on livestock in adjoining areas
- minimise the impact of wild dogs on the conservation of native fauna
- conserve the dingo in core areas of reserves listed in Schedule 2 of the Pest Control Order for Wild Dogs
- minimise the impact of wild dog control on non-target species of native fauna
- encourage liaison between the NPWS, RLPBs and neighbours regarding wild dogs
- raise awareness of the NPWS' role in the management of wild dogs
- encourage integrated planning and control of wild dogs across all land tenures
- protect park visitors and staff from attacks by wild dogs.
