The scat collection study is continuing after the first batch of scats (172) have been independently analysed.

The Conservation Volunteers, Nature Wise program commenced their second program on Fraser Island on May 15. The program had four participants, with Jono Bateman as the program leader. NRM QPWS rangers John, Gordon and Linda assisted the group in the collection of the scats and provided vital information on Fraser Island dingoes and the scat study.
