To investigate predator management in a farming and agricultural context featured image

Predators instantly become a nuisance when they enter farming areas predating on livestock and causing financial losses. In Australia, wild dogs (defined as dingoes, free-roaming dogs and their hybrids) have been managed due to predation on sheep, goats and cattle for many years. Similarly, caracals and black-backed jackals are considered damage-causing animals and a major threat to small stock farming in South Africa.


Tracey will investigate alternative methods to baiting, shooting and trapping, for the management of wild dogs in Western Australia. Collaborating with South African researchers will increase Tracey's knowledge on management options for predators in a farming context avoiding reliance on traditional methods.
