Striving to make a difference in our world

Dingo Daz's Presentation

Darren Griffiths (president of the WA Dingo Association) talks at the Perth Advocates for the Earth Inc fundraising and educational forum titled, "Can We Make A Difference?" on the 24th August 2013.

100% of funds raised ($6,150) were donated to the Barristers Animal Welfare Panel to help them continue their work in improving animal welfare legislation in Australia and beyond.

The dedicated Darren (better known as DingoDaz) along with the supportive team at the WA Dingo Association Incorporated work very hard to educate the public about this much maligned native Australian Wolf, the living ancestor of all domestic dog species. "Evolving and adapting in the Australian environment for 18,000 - 28,000 years the Dingo fills the role of ecological stabilizer. It has been proven where stable Dingo packs live, there is greater bio-diversity. Where they are absent, introduced predators and other invasive species decimate the native flora and fauna.

Currently being studied by scientists at the USA's Harvard University they are thought to be as intelligent as some higher order primates. In their native country official policy in many states classify them as vermin to be wiped out at every opportunity, yet some have listed them as a vulnerable native species protected by law. Without further research and awareness, the Dingo will go the way of the Thylacine.

The WA Dingo Association gives regular talks & presentations to community groups in WA. For further information or to book a presentation please email us at " ~ WADA President Darren Griffiths.

This is soooo makes me cry as i'm sure it has many others...But our tears count for nothing.... It seems, we that feel for our beautiful native dog are so powereless due to all this complex side stepping of what is right as shown here by legalities & stupid laws.... Even though the value of our native predator is clearly shown in this talk to be of greater value to the greater environment of many animals of the food chain in question.........Please keep me informed if there is anything this small soft hearted lover of all our wonderful flora & fauna can do to help....thank you... P.S. Dingo Daz thank you for this well informed & excellent presentation.... Bronwyn..
