Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstract


Dingoes are an Australian icon, yet defining a dingo is controversial and complicated by hybridisation with domestic dogs. Being able to distinguish dingoes from dogs is important for a range of reasons, including in the event of a disease emergency. Three visits were made to the Northern Peninsula Area study region (2018 2019) to collect background information from stakeholder groups to develop a questionnaire subsequently implemented with community residents. Pictures of canids were collected via camera traps placed and operated within the region.
