Brad Purcell & Dingo

Environmentally sustainable dingo and livestock management that incorporates the five freedoms of animal welfare and objectives of the Australian Animal Welfare Strategy is essential for future management of wild and domestic species. The Defenders of Wildlife, USA, Wood River Proactive Wolf Project has shown wolves and livestock can coexist. Suzanne Stone oversees Defender’s programs for wolf management in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming. She has managed large carnivores since 1988, including serving as a member of the 1995/1996 USA/Canadian wolf reintroduction team. Suzanne Stone facilitates wildlife conflict and nonlethal management techniques.
