On the edge: Wild dogs research at Coffs Harbour


Over the past year North Coast Local Land Services and a range of partners have been studying wild dogs and other ground animals at the ‘edge’ of Coffs Harbour urban areas to better understand how to manage wild dogs in these areas. The project has four components, including the use of remotely placed cameras (‘camera traps’) to record ground animals, satellite or GPS tracking to record movements, diet analysis and DNA sampling to look at the level of hybridisation (the percentage of DNA attributable to either dingoes or domestic dogs).

This Peri-urban Research Project is supported by North Coast Local Land Services through funding from the National Landcare Programme.

Wild dogs in Kyogle and Richmond Valley

Increasing numbers of wild dogs and roaming domestic dogs are causing problems across the northern rivers region. To combat the problem seven northern Photo by Jim Rogersriver councils (NOROC) have partnered with National Parks and Wildlife, the Livestock Health and Pest Authority and the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre to implement a dog education campaign.  


The main aims of the project are to improve the level of responsible pet ownership and to increase the active wild dog management. A recent survey showed that up to 70% of wild dog sightings are not reported. To ensure adequate resources are available to manage the wild dog problem all sightings need to be reported.
