Best Practice Baiting: Dispersal and seasonal movement of wild dogs

Initially, this project had three major objectives:
• Demonstrate to stakeholders the potential movement of wild dogs by monitoring collared wild dogs in three hot-spot areas within the Wild Dog Barrier Fence.
• Identify how far dispersers travel from these areas to determine how wide buffers need to be to prevent re-colonisation.
• Discover why the Activity Index peaks during the April/May mating season so as to predict the most effective time to bait to avoid re-colonisation.
