WOOL producers have been called on to keep up the attack on wild dogs.Australian Wool Innovation has spent $9 million in the past decade combating wild dogs but some of its programs are ending.
The AWI's $1 million cash grants program has been a success in organising control groups and spreading awareness.
National Wild Dog Committee chairman Michael McCormack said AWI had been "a good corporate citizen'' at a time when it was difficult to win support from state and federal governments.
"Some of the AWI's programs are coming to a close and to some people it might seem that means they are not funding wild dogs anymore but that's not the case.''
Other wild dogs programs will continue, he said.
"We believe the cash grants program was very successful and we hope the board will decide to fund it into the future.''
AWI head of on-farm research, development and extension Dr Jane Littlejohn said the cash grants program had been particularly attractive to voluntary groups.
"Our work against wild dogs is continuing, this is just one program but it has been popular and an argument could be put up for it to continue.''
