Marilyn Nuske started this petition to Sussan Ley MP (Minister for Environment Commonwealth of Australia) and

Poisons including 1080 are Used to kill Dingoes. Dingoes are shot and hunted for pelts.   

The use of  poisons in our environment to kill Dingoes, aka "wild dogs"  is having  disastrous impact on the ecological biodiversity of this country. The Dingo is our top order land predator, and left to its devices maintains ecological  balance in the  biodiversity.

Poisons, used for 70 years in this country, are unnecessary, and simply  lining the pockets of the poisons industry.

Use of 1080 poison baits in remote communities over much of Australia has led to goannas taking poison baits. As goanna remains a part of traditional diet in many indigenous communities of Australia, indigenous first nation are ingesting non-lethal doses of 1080 poison The 2008 Review of use of 1080 poison did not assess the risk to human health nor the outcome of ingesting non-lethal doses of 1080 poison

Not only have toxins like 1080 brought about cruel and unnecessary deaths in millions of Dingoes, 1080  kills native wildlife, has killed directly or indirectly the threatened Spot Tailed Quoll,  lizards, birds and raptor. 1080  is poisoning companion animals across Australia in unprecedented numbers. 

26 of Australia's leading environmental  Scientists have endorsed removing 1080 from use and  killing our iconic Australian Dingo  on environmental grounds and both Federal and State Government must  listen.

Dingoes provide protection to small and native species from foxes and cats.

Data obtained under Freedom of Information has shown that claims of stock loss to predation by Dingoes is exaggerated and negligible. This issue must finally be addressed by both Commonwealth and State Governments and the use of 1080 poison must 

The use of 1080 poison in Australia must be halted and APVMA must open 1080 use for public  submissions
