What WildDogScan provides

Wild dogs (including feral dogs, dingoes and their hybrids) are a major problem throughout Australia because they maul and kill livestock, prey on native fauna (such as koalas), spread some diseases, and they can pose a threat to humans. The damage caused by wild dogs is estimated at $66.3 million annually.

WildDogScan is a free resource. Landholders, community groups, pest controllers, local councils and biosecurity organisations can use the resource to record information about wild dogs. You can use it to map wild dog activity, document wild dog problems, upload photos, and record control activities.  WildDogScan can help you and your neighbours stay informed about wild dogs in your local area.


What you can record or view in WildDogScan

Sightings or evidence of wild dogs

Such as observations of wild dogs, footprints, scats, howling or camera photos. The more information you record, the more informative the wild dog map will become over time. Trends in movement will start to emerge, which can be used to decide where control should be undertaken.

Wild dog attacks or problems

Such as killing or mauling sheep, goats, domestic pets, horses, etc. Recording the damage that wild dogs cause is important for deciding when and where wild dog control should be undertaken. It can also be used to help you access resources, and quickly inform your neighbours and local biosecurity authorities.

Control activities

Such as baiting, trapping, ground shooting, etc. Recording control activities can help you to (1) create a map of where you are focusing your efforts and keep a record of where you have used a technique, (2) evaluate whether changes are needed, and (3) help you work with your neighbours to synchronise control to get the best outcomes.

All information regarding control is managed privately.

The more information you enter, the more useful the map will become for you, your neighbours, and local authorities helping people to manage wild dogs.

Benefits of using WildDogScan

Stay informed about local wild dog activity. WildDogScan can be used by individuals, entire landholder groups, pest control professionals, local councils, or biosecurity groups. Please regularly refer to the WildDogScan Map to review recent wild dog activity in your local area. If you have joined a landholder group using WildDogScan to monitor and map wild dog activity together, we can automatically notify you about changes in wild dog activity in your local area.
Help protect your neighbours from wild dogs. If you record wild dog sightings, evidence or wild dog attacks, this information can be used to notify your neighbours or your entire local community.
Alert your local biosecurity group. If you record wild dog information into WildDogScan, this can be used to automatically alert your local biosecurity group or government agency about wild dog activity at your location.
Develop a community wild dog map and work together. People are using WildDogScan to coordinate control, plan for future control programs, and to assess the scale of the problem in their local area. Landholders report that they get the best results when managing the impacts of wild dogs when they work with their neighbours and community. WildDogScan can be used to develop a community map of wild dogs, to help everyone work together to reduce the impacts they cause.
