What WilddogScan provides?

WildDogScan provides:

  • A website dedicated to Wild Dogs and information on the species and where to go for assistance
  • A mapping tool to help you map Wild Dogs, the damage (or problems) they cause, and areas where control is being undertaken.
  • A national Wild Dog database showing trends in reported data and problems, and locations where communities are coming together to reduce wild dog damage.

Why we need to come together to control Wild Dogs

Wild dogs, which include feral domestic dogs, dingoes and their hybrids, are a major problem in Australia because they cause an estimated $66.3 million damage to our economy, primarily through predation of livestock. Wild dogs and can also adversely affect native animals, especially threatened wildlife if not properly managed. As dingoes are also valued as a native species, their conservation is equally important. As a consequence, managing the impacts of wild dogs to reduce livestock losses, while conserving dingoes in key areas can be a challenging task. Wild dogs may also pose a serious risk to humans, or if Rabies were to be accidently introduced to Australia. For further information on the impacts of Wild Dog in Australia, see Wild dog damage - an overview.
Management of Wild Dogs requires a collaborative effort, where everyone has a part to play.  As the damage caused by Wild Dogs is widespread and far-reaching, we must work together to reduce wild dog : human conflicts. Landholders, pest control officers, local government and researchers must work together to manage populations of Wild Dogs to reduce the damage they cause. Gathering baseline data (through WildDogScan) is one tool that can help collaboration to address the problems they cause.

Map sightings of Wild Dogs, damage and control activities in your area

You can help by recording sightings of Wild Dog, and recording the damage/problems caused by Wild Dogs in your area. This could include incidental sightings (one-off), or more regular data gathered over time. Information recorded in WildDogScan can be used to help coordinate local control activities, with the aim of reducing the problems they cause in your local area. 

You can use WildDogScan to create and print a map of your area. Importantly, it can be a useful resource to help coordinate on-ground control or actions to prevent the problems caused by wild dogs (eg. Mauling of livestock) in your area.
