While hundreds of people stand on the beach, enthralled by the wild Dolphins literally at their feet, no more that a few metres behind them is a truely magnificent and equally enchanting animal. Dingo Loxie stands patiently at the end of the line, under a fluttering Australian flag, getting the occasional picture snapped by tourists that realise what she is..

Unlike the Dolphin or the Whale, there is no resort in the middle of the desert, built to showcase her achievements, no museum to demonstrate her species destruction at the hand of man. There is no Dingo Education Centre along side the Dolphin Education Centre costing millions of dollars of taxpayers monies. But the Government does spend millions on the Dingo every year. Millions of dollars devoted to their eradication.. Money on repairing an ineffective "dog fence".. Money on Toxic poisons to kill them in national parks. Money to pay pastoralist and professional "doggers' to trap shoot and scalp the Dingo for 50 bucks a head.. Millions on flights over uninhabited desert to wipe out the Dingo with aerial dropped 1080 baits at the rate of 50 per kilometre. All to enable the pet meat industry breed 100's of thousands of feral goats that turn the land to dust. Millions more spent on the education and training of all these people on how to use 'best practice' in the genocide of an already endangered Australian native species.

So Loxie will continue her daily, lonely ambasadorial role, educating the public, greeting adults and children alike with a big grin and a wagging tail, without the millions of dollars to help in her own education projects. She will patiently stand in the background, behind the Dolphins and the Whales, silently doing all she can to dispell the myths and misinformation diseminated by the same govenment that spends millions on the adorable Dolphins and Whales. Like Loxie there are other Dingoes out there in the public performing the same role. In the face of overwhelming goverment sponsored opposition, these magificent and gentle animals breakdown the public misperceptions of the Dingo one person at a time..

Hopefully one day in there future the will be a Dingo Education Centre built in the desert. There will be a museum to the Dingo and the horrific way we 'Used' to treat them. The 5000 km 'dog fence will be ripped down and cut up and sold to tourists as souveniers, who will come in their millions to get up close and see the Dingoes in the wild as they now come to watch the Dolphins at Monkey Mia and to whatch the Whales migrating along our coastlines..

One Day.......

Please don't let the Dingo be wiped out by Greed, fear and Myth like the Thylacine..

It is our duty, not just as Australians, but as members of the human race, to make a stand against this injustice..

Do something now before it is too late. The Dingo's fate is in your hands..

Contact your state Misister for the Environment or Federal minister for Environment Mr Peter Garret and voice your abhornce at the Government sponsored genocide of Australia's own LION KING
