Canis lupus dingo
As the largest land carnivore in Australia, the dingoes plays a vital role in maintaining the balance in ecosystems by controlling the number of predator and prey species. Food sources range from insects to buffalo.
Fraser Island: Pure and Interbreeding
A major threat to dingoes is its ability to interbreed with domestic dogs. The population of dingoes on Fraser Island is of national significance as they may become the purest breed of dingo.
