Dingo fate protested

ANGER about the fate of Fraser Island dingoes has prompted a Brisbane rally on May 15.

Save Fraser Island Dingoes Inc, a group of residents, ex-rangers, conservationists, biologists and indigenous Australians, wants the State Government to adopt better management practices to ensure the species’ survival on the island.

The group disputes government data that puts dingo numbers at several hundred, saying the real population would only be between 80 and 100 animals.

Spokeswoman Karin Kilpatrick said the dingo faced the same fate as the Tasmanian Tiger.

The group will meet QPWS tomorrow to seek proof of the dingo numbers it claims are on the island.

Buses from Maryborough, Hervey Bay and Gympie will travel to Brisbane on May 15 for the 10am march on Parliament House.

It will start at Emma Miller Place in Roma Street and be followed by a rally in Musgrave Park.
