Dingo Whiskers is a community education program offered by the Australian Dingo Foundation. Our passionate team are lucky enough to present alongside wonderful ambassador dingoes from the Dingo Discovery Sanctuary. This enables us to demonstrate the physical differences between dingoes, Canis dingo, and domestic dogs, Canis familiaris.

Our presentations also cover a range of topics from dingo biology, ecology, history, coexistence, and more! Using this holistic approach, we aim to get Australian’s to think outside the box. Overall, our service intends to point out the difference between how dingoes are perceived and what they actually are – Australia’s one-of-kind top predator.

We cater for Primary and Secondary school incursions/excursions, corporate or other events within an hour’s drive of Toolern Vale. We also tailor presentations to suit school curricula or specific events.

For students that are too far away for an incursion or visit to the Sanctuary, an information pack is available. All students need to do is send a letter to the ADF (P.O. Box 502, Gisborne, Victoria, 3437), asking us questions about dingoes!
