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.
deeply attuned to the cultural and geographical specificities of K’gari.
