Despite being an ecological and cultural keystone species, the dingo is the only native mammal in NSW not protected under the Biodiversity Conservation Act.
Every day, dingoes are shot and trapped by local councils and landholders. Even in national parks, dingoes are baited with deadly 1080, which causes a slow, agonising death that no animal deserves to suffer.
That’s why I have introduced a bill to NSW Parliament that will outlaw the killing of dingoes. The Dingo Cultural Heritage and Protection Bill 2022 recognises that dingoes are vital to ecological biodiversity and have maintained a symbiotic partnership with First Nations people over thousands of years.
Please sign and share my petition today to tell NSW Environment Minister James Griffin that after 200 years of persecution, it’s time for dingoes to be given the respect and legal protection they deserve.
