About Eagle’s Nest Wildlife Hospital

Introduction

Accepted as a native animal in other states of Australia, Queensland’s Dingoes are outlawed and endangered. With the blessing of the Queensland Government, hundreds are cruelly poisoned annually. Confused with Dingo-domestic dog crossbreeds, which hunt livestock in packs, purebred Dingoes are systematically slaughtered. A sanctuary for these beautiful animals is needed. Now. Before bringing them back from the brink is impossible.

Vital

The Dingo is a vital component of Australia’s natural environment. Co-inhabiting with Australia’s Indigenous peoples  for over 18 000 years, this shy and family-oriented creature it is a crucial top predator, removing sick and injured native animals, so that only the fittest survive and thrive. Since the introduction of domestic animals such as rabbits, pigs and cats, the Dingo has proven imperative to the control of these now-feral pests. Where there are no Dingoes, numbers of destructive ferals explode: native flora dies, native fauna vanishes. Sometimes forever. Please help restore the balance of Nature.

Help To Make Dingoes Safe

Eagles Nest Wildlife Hospital in Far North Queensland asks you to help them make the Dingo safe. Dingoes referred to Eagles Nest will be relocated to a setting far from populated areas. Here, these magnificent creatures will finally live free from persecution whilst returning – to a healthy balance – at least part of Queensland’s unique environment.

Please help to secure a safe future for Queensland’s purebred Dingoes.

“Persecuted. Hunted to near extinction. Vital to ecological balance. Queensland’s Canis dingo, the Australian purebred Dingo, urgently needs your help. Help them to live in peace and to survive. My work for over 20 years has been dedicated to wildlife. We need larger, better enclosures to house and rehabilitate aniamls like the dingo and eagles, possums and snakes. Thank you.”
