What WildDogScan provides

Central Highlands Regional Resources Use Planning Cooperative (CHRRUP) is a regional natural resource management group in Queensland’s Central Highlands. We deliver programs of activities to improve natural resource management practices to improve the sustainability of our region. Feral animals and pest plants are among our region’s biggest threats to production and biodiversity.

Visit our CHRRUP website.

Wild dogs are a big problem for producers in the Central Highlands, causing damage to livestock production, and impact on native fauna. Resources to fight the scourge of these invaders must be carefully allocated so that the best return is gained from investment of public and private funds. To do this, we need good data on the location, numbers, impacts and problems caused by pests, such as wild dogs.

WildDogScan is a resource we can use to get a clear understanding of the wild dog problem from people involved in the battle. We encourage you to use the WildDogScan Map to record your observations. The more data entered, the more useful the map will become for managing wild dogs across our entire region.

 For further information please contact CHRRUP on (07) 4982 2996, or E-mail

How does WildDogScan work?

WildDogScan is a free resource for landholders, Landcare groups, community groups, local Councils, professional pest controllers and biosecurity groups. It has been designed by landholders for communities.You can help develop a better picture about the wild dog problem in the Central Highlands by recording wild dogs in your local area. Use the map to plan coordinated control with your neighbours and send email notifications to biosecurity authorities and professional pest controllers. 

 What to record:

  1. Sightings and evidence (e.g. footprints)
  2. Attacks (e.g. mauled livestock)
  3. Control activities (e.g. baiting or trapping)

Bring your community together online

Create or join an online group to share your observations with other people in your local area (e.g. landholder group). By joining a group, you can (1) keep neighbours informed about wild dog activity, (2) work together with members to target problem areas, and (3) measure control outcomes.

Develop a community mapping resource for your region

Do you need a web and app-based community mapping resource customised for your region, catchment, shire or local government area? Regional sites are now being developed to centralise all wild dog data across regions and generate wild dog activity notifications and reports. Contact Mr Peter West (Invasive Animals CRC) for more details via
