The Australian Dingo is the endangered and threatened species near to extinction. The main threats are due to the issues like inbreeding, hybridization, government eradication programs for ‘wild dogs’, hunting and genetic unfitness. There were no specific strategies used for conservation programs for Australian Dingoes till date.
Dingoes are Australian mammals given protection in many regions. They have a good role in the eco systems. The conservation of these species is essential and hence, new approaches are required to be followed for conserving these dogs. There are many changes in environment on regular basis. Dingo is a primate dog having evolvement from the wolf variety and it has been into existence from past 6000 years in South parts of Asia. The migration was done in Australian regions about 4000 years ago.
