South of the Dog Fence: Whilst NCSSA acknowledges that, south of the Dog Fence, sheep and wild dogs are incompatible, NCSSA does not support laying poison baits where there is no evidence of wild dogs being present.
North of the Dog Fence: Dingoes are a legitimate wildlife species that play an important ecological role north of the dog fence. NCSSA therefore does not support widespread aerial baiting. Where it is necessary, NCSSA advocates for limited, targeted control which is tailored at a property level.
In order to better understand the impacts and benefits of dingoes, NCSSA believes that their management must be underpinned by rigorous, long-term monitoring and evaluation programs that are adequately resourced.
