The Dingo Lady

This website is dedicated to the memory of Berenice Walters,
the Dingo Lady

Berenice devoted over 30 years of her life as the Dingo’s advocate. Through commitment to observing, studying, breeding and being at one with the dingo’s spirit  she became a recognised authority on Australia’s Native Dog.

As the Dingo’s champion she took every opportunity to promote
understanding of the dingo, fight for its recognition and acceptance as the native dog of Australia and educate the public on the truth about it's the characteristics and behaviour.

The Project

From a young age Berenice researched and studied the Dingo and other wild canids (wild dogs, wolves etc) and was ultimately acknowledged world wide as an authority on the Dingo and for her work that contributed significantly to:

  • a greater understanding of the Dingo
  • relaxation of the laws concerning the Dingo

Berenice's records of over 30 years include manuscripts, photos, videos, 8mm film and audio tapes of research and public education.

The Dingo Lady project involves filing, data logging and digitising her records and concurrently writing her biography.
