Are dingoes an invasive species?



  1. 0 Votes

    Dingos originated in Southern Asia and are an invasive species, brought to Australia a few thousand years ago. An enormous fence was erected across the nation in an effort to keep livestock safe from dingos. A recent study indicates that the side of the country with dingos has a higher biodiversity than the sans-dingo side. This indicates that while the dingo was once an invasive species it has settled into it’s own niche in the Australian ecosystem over time.

    Yes, dingoes are considered an invasive species. The official definition of invasive species is a “species that has been introduced to an environment where it is not native, and that has since become a nuisance through rapid spread and increase in numbers, often to the detriment of native species.”
