How to get involved

WildDogScan is a freely available website and mapping facility for local communities anywhere in Australia. Data entered into WildDogScan can help to identify priority areas for wild dog control, help coordinate control activities, and report the situation with wild dogs at any time in your region. By recording information about wild dogs in your area, you will be helping to address the problems they are causing in your local area and across the country. 

Collecting and recording data

Before entering data, you will need to Register. Once registered, you can enter as little or as much information as you like, but the more data you enter, the more useful WildDogScan will be for the management of Wild Dogs in your area. If you have registered as part of another species project (e.g RabbitScan) you do not need to register again.

1. How many Wild Dogs are there in your area?

By mapping sightings of wild dogs, WildDogScan will be able to map where wild dogs occur in your region to help guide control activities. The number of wild dogs seen can help to decide what course of action to take. Reporting areas where wild dogs have not been seen is also important.

2. What damage (or problems) are Wild Dogs causing?

If Wild Dogs are a problem in your area, record what damage (or problems) they are causing. For example, threatening domestic pets ot mauling livestock. By recording problems, this information can be considered across your region, and can help to alert others to be watchful for similar problems. The aim should be to reduce the damage Wild Dogs cause in the long term, and across the region, not just a small area.

3. What control is being undertaken?

Recording whether Wild Dogs are being controlled in your area can help to evaluate the success of control activities, and identify suitable management options, ie how best to control wild dogs across your region. This information can also help to identify whether there are gaps in the areas being controlled. Mapping where control has occurred can produce useful information for others in your area, especially so group control programs can be organised across larger areas.
