    Dingo Bold
    The Life and Death of K'gari Dingoes
    Dingo Bold is a thought-provoking exploration of the relationship between people and dingoes. At its heart is Rowena Lennox's encounter with a dingo on the beach on K'gari (Fraser Island), a young male she nicknames Bold. Struck by this experience, and by the intense, often polarised opinions expressed in public conversations about dingo conservation and control, she sets out to understand the complex relationship between humans and dingoes. <br/><br/>Weaving together ecological data, interviews with people connected personally and professionally with K'gari's dingoes, and Lennox's expansive reading of literary, historical and scientific accounts, Dingo Bold considers what we know about the history of relations between dingoes and humans, and what preconceptions shape our attitudes today. Do we see dingoes as native wildlife or feral dogs? Wild or domesticated animals? A tourist attraction or a threat?And how do our answers to these questions shape our interactions with them? <br/><br/>Dingo Bold is both a moving memoir of love and loss through Lennox's observations of the natural world and an important contribution to wider conversations about conservation and animal welfare.<br/><br/>'In Dingo Bold, Rowena Lennox wrestles with the emotionally laden subject of the human-wild divide through the lens of the policies managing the dingoes on K'gari (Fraser Island). Along the way she breathes life into stories of the dingoes she meets and learns about, including the eponymous Bold...Dingo Bold is a thoroughly engaging and deeply personal book that examines dingo life and the humans charged with their survival.' - Books+Publishing
