Just as other countries such as the US have discovered the enormous benefits of top predators like the wolf some experts are supporting the idea of reintroducing dingoes into the Australian landscape. With feral cats and foxes threatening to wipe out so many of our small native animals dingoes may be our last chance to save them. As in Yellowstone without the wolf after they were systematically wiped out the whole environment changed, deer overpopulated and degraded the land and the river areas along with many other significant impacts that were destroying the beauty of the natural habitat. Since the reintroduction of the wolf Yellowstone has flourished which proves this amazing animal is necessary to a healthy environment. So it is with the dingo our only top predator. People need to rethink their attitudes to this animal instead of persecuting it, he could be the obvious key to our feral animal problem.
