Sorry about the slow reply - I have been off chasing Regent Parrots near Euston
for the last few days.
Indeed there are dingoes still in the Warragamba Catchment - it was one of the
species that we were looking at during surveys a few years ago (and yes there
was a student doing a PhD on genetics).
Attached is a link to the profile that we came up with (I didn't write this
one, the maps are mainly my work though I admit they have problems).
The rest of the report is here and might be of interest
