    Meet the dingoes

    The Dingo Sanctuary is a conservation and breeding program for up to 32 pure Australian Dingoes. Our aim is to prove they have a positive influence on our ecosystem in Australia. To prove they are an eco friendly approach and not the vermin they are seen to be. Many farmers are now realising this. We rely on your generosity to continue the research and fight to have them protected through donations, memberships and sponsoring. The most effective way you can help the dingoes and the research programs is by visiting and learning about the dingoes here, and by sponsoring or sending a donation of any amount.

    Sponsor a dingo today!

    Sponsorship is $300 Australian Dollars annually.

    Our aim is to educate the public. There is no better way than to visit the dingoes here and learn about their individual histories. The dingo evolved and adapted in the Australian environment, nobody really knows how many years. They are deeply social and also pack animals, and an apex predator in a pack situation. In a stable pack situation they are known to keep the introduced species numbers’ in control – the foxes, rabbits, feral cats, goats and pigs. Unfortunately the government thinks otherwise.  Our Sanctuary teaches people why these animals deserve our protection.

    Your money goes towards the upkeep of a dingo of your choice. As this amount of money does not fully cover an animal for a year, multiple sponsorships are available.

    This then will include not only food, but also maintenance of the dingoes accommodation (naturally vegetated enclosures of between 150 and 1250 square metres, and larger exercise areas), veterinary care, DNA testing and genetic testing such as hip x-rays and eye examinations. And our continuing fight and research contributions to the Australian Dingoes and their preservation.
