Fraser Island Dingoes
Jaylene has been super active in exposing the heartbreaking state of the Fraser Island Dingoes to a worldwide audience. You can view the documentary by clicking on the link below.
Fraser Island Dingoes are unique to Fraser Island and are facing extinction. Their numbers have shamefully reduced to just a few hundred in the last decade because of the current government’s management plan of shooting, hazing, poisoning and starving them to death, all because of the tourism dollar. Fraser Island is a World Heritage Listed Island – the dingoes need to be made a priority before they become extinct. The government now has heavy tracking collars around their necks, making it even harder for them to hunt. This on top of the fact that they have been fenced off from areas where most of their prey is, the dingoes don’t stand a chance of surviving. Jaylene has commissioned a stunning painting of the dingoes which is now on sale for $18,000 – the proceeds of the sale will help continue the fight for this incredibly important animal rights’ issue. The painting is shown below.About the Painting: Painted by Leigh Hutfield. It is 1.83 metres x 61cm of Acrylic and muslin on canvas.
The expanse of golden white sand which stretches the entire length of the east side of Fraser Island – more commonly known as 75 mile Beach; is the scene that is set for the painting……Incorporating the dignified yet beautiful Dingoes that roam this captivating island.
