Discuss the economic, environmental and social considerations affecting predator-driven ecological restorationprogrammes, and suggest approaches for reducing the undesirable impacts of predators.
Type of Study:
Lethal dingo control can alter predator social structure. Dingo re-introduction may have positive biodiversity benefits.
livestock guardian animals present a viableoption for maintaining predator functions while also minimisingstock loss.
Global review, with emphasis on dingoes
