A PhD student from UWS in Sydney was looking at the genetic integrity of
Dingo populations in the catchment to the southwest of Sydney (see SMH
itys-doorstep/2005/09/02/1125302746483.html - the population referred to
I believe).  I also know of a population north of Sydney considered to
be of about 75% genetic integrity according to National Parks rangers up
that way.  However I would imagine that the closer to urban areas you
are the less gentic integrity there would be.  Domestic dogs allowed to
roam travel great distances along tracks into bush areas.  It is a pity
we have such irresponsible dog onwership that contributes to the
dilution of the genes of the Dingo.

Hi Evan,

Yes, there are dingoes in the Blue Mountains, but as Greg pointed out
most are not pure having interbred with feral dogs. I've heard them
howling out near Jenolan Caves, and there's a good population in the
Burragorang Valley to the south of the Blue Mountains (this I think
is the relatively pure population that Chris mentioned).
