Dingoes play a key role in the conservation of Australian outback ecosystems by suppressing feral cat populations, a UNSW Sydney study has found.

A UNSW Sydney study says more evidence is needed before declaring the dingo a feral animal, casting a shadow over state governments’ justification for culling Australia’s largest carnivorous mammal.

Wild bilbies have learnt to avoid an old enemy, but are less cautious of a newer predator, new research suggests.

A major study of dingo DNA has revealed the animals most likely migrated to Australia in two separate waves – a find with significant implications for their conservation.

The dingo has a far greater impact on the Australian landscape than previously thought, new research reveals.

Extermination of dingoes and the consequent loss of small mammals – not just overgrazing by livestock – have led to a rapid spread of woody weed shrubs across semi-arid Australia, a new study shows.

Returning the Tasmanian devil to mainland habitats where dingoes have been culled will improve biodiversity outcomes, UNSW researchers say.

Set largely in the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, this film by UNSW PhD candidate Daniel Hunter explores the role of dingoes in forests and demonstrates their removal is having negative repercussions on ecosystems. The full documentary will be launced at UNSW in May.

The dingo has been classified as a distinct Australian animal with the species name Canis dingo following research that sheds new light on its defining physical characteristics.
