Group wants dingo facial recognition instead of ear tagging

THE Save the Fraser Island Dingo Group is calling on the State Government to abandon ear tagging in favour of facial recognition technology.

Professor Brian Lovell of the University of Queensland recently applied the software in a study to identify individual dingoes on Fraser Island and was able to successfully match the correct animal 80% of the time.

Prof Lovell said a smart phone app for dingoes could enable the public to help with dingo population monitoring.
