How to use WildDogScan in 2016

WildDogScan is a free resource for landholders, the community and pest controllers to map sightings of wild dogs, their impacts, and control activities in their local area. Use WildDogScan to document wild dog activity, communicate the problem to other people, and identify priority areas for wild dog control.

Record sightings, evidence, impacts and control

Use WildDogScan (website and App) to record wild dog activity, damage caused by wild dogs, and your control activities. Create a local wild dog map, and work with your neighbours and local authorities.

Bring your community together online

Create or join an online group to share your observations with other people in your local area (e.g. landholder group). By joining a group, you can (1) keep neighbours informed about wild dog activity, (2) work together with members to target problem areas, and (3) measure control outcomes.

Develop a community mapping resource for your region

Do you need a web and app-based community mapping resource customised for your region, catchment, shire or local government area? Regional sites are now being developed to centralise all wild dog data across regions and generate wild dog activity notifications and reports. Contact Mr Peter West (Invasive Animals CRC) for more details via E-mail feralscan@feralscan.org.au

Are you part of a coordinated wild dog control program?

Working with your neighbours is the best way to reduce wild dog damage and maximise the long-term benefits of control. If you need advice on how to establish a wild dog control group, contact your local pest management authorities, or Greg Mifsud at the Invasive Animals CRC (greg.mifsud@invasiveanimals.com)

Regional groups connected to WildDogScan

Reducing wild dog impacts is best achieved when control is coordinated at local and regional scales. Catchment groups, Local Land Services (LLS) (NSW), and local councils are now connecting to WildDogScan. Use WildDogScan in your local area to keep your regional group(s) informed about current wild dog activity.
