The Life and Death of K'gari Dingoes
Sydney University Press 2021
Australia and dingos - we have a past and future, and not without controversy.
Dingo Bold: The Life and Death of K'gari Dingoes (Sydney UP, 2021) examines this relationship, with Rowena Lennox's encounter with a dingo, 'Bold', on K'gari (Fraser Island). There are intense, polarised opinions over dingo conservation and control. How should we live with dingos? Native wildlife or feral dogs? Wild or domesticated? A tourist attraction or a threat?
