The Australian Dingo is a free-roaming wild dog unique to the continent of Australia. Living largely apart from people and other dogs, together with the demands of Australian ecology, has caused them to develop features and instincts that distinguish them from all other canines. The Fraser Island Dingoes are believed to be the purest of the Dingo breeds due to its isolation and lack of interaction with domestic dogs. The Fraser Island Dingo is at high risk of extinction due mainly to extremely poor management by government departments charged with the preservation of the World Heritage Listed Fraser Island. These incredible dogs are critically endangered and desperately need our support if they are to survive in their natural island habitat. There is serious concern for the health of these animals in particular starvation is reported by some observers as a real threat to the long time survival of the island species.
We can save this species! Help raise awareness and conservation of these unique animals with this beautiful Save the Fraser Island Dingo Poster. We can all help foster support for these seriously endangered Fraser Island Dingoes by raising awareness and curiosity.
Fraser Island is located off the south coast of Queensland, Australia, approximately 200 kilometres (120 mi) north of Brisbane. Its length is approximately 120 kilometres (75 mi) and its width is approximately 24 kilometres (15 mi). It was inscribed as a World Heritage site in 1992. The island is considered to be the largest sand island in the world at 1840 km². It is also Queensland's largest island, Australia's sixth largest island and the largest island on the East Coast of Australia.
The island has rainforests, eucalyptus woodland, mangrove forests, wallum and peat swamps, sand dunes and coastal heaths. It is made up of sand that has been accumulating for approximately 750,000 years on volcanic bedrock that provides a natural catchment for the sediment which is carried on a strong offshore current northwards along the coast. Unlike many sand dunes, plant life is abundant due to the naturally occurring mycorrhizal fungi present in the sand, which release nutrients in a form that can be absorbed by the plants. Fraser Island is home to a small number of mammal species, as well as a diverse range of birds, reptiles and amphibians, including the occasional saltwater crocodile. The island is part of the Fraser Coast Region and protected in the Great Sandy National Park.
Fraser Island has been inhabited by humans for as much as 5,000 years. Explorer James Cook sailed by the island in May 1770. Matthew Flinders landed near the most northern point of the island in 1802. For a short period the island was known as Great Sandy Island. The island became known as Fraser due to the stories of a shipwreck survivor named Eliza Fraser. Today the island is a popular tourism destination. Its resident human population was 360 at the census of 2006
