Dingo puppy cuddles anyone? – Mt Baw Baw expands education programmes with arrival of dingo cub, son of Wandi

Mt Baw Baw has announced the expansion of its Dingo Resource Centre and community education programs with the arrival of a new dingo cub “Bunji” ahead of the alpine green season.

Bunji’s name, which means “mate” in the local language, was suggested by local members of the community via social media. Bunji arrives from the Toolern Vale based Australian Dingo Foundation which has partnered with Mt Baw Baw for the resort’s education programs.

“What is really special is that little Bunji is actually the son of Wandi, the pure alpine dingo who became famous after being found dropped by a bird of prey in a backyard in Wandiligong” said Taylor Woods, Mt Baw Baw’s Environmental Officer.

Mt Baw Baw’s dingo puppy cuddle sessions commence in late October and run through to May just before snow season. Cuddle sessions will run for around 30 minutes, at a cost of $39 per person, and include photo opportunities and coffee and cake afterwards at the Village Central Restaurant.

“It’s thanks to the popularity of our walks and support from the local community last winter that we’ve been able to expand our dingo education programmes and we’re looking forward to the return of the Melbourne, interstate and international visitors” said Amon Bradshaw, Marketing and Events Coordinator.

Walks with Rowdy and Warragul as part of the summer “Walk Away Extinction” programme have resumed and are available online now. Lucky visitors can join alpine dingoes Rowdy and Warragul on a 1 hour guided walk around the village with cuddles and photos to finish. Dingo walks are priced at $39 per person and also include coffee and cake.

During walks and cuddle sessions visitors learn about the important role that dingoes play in the Alpine ecosystem including their relationship with threatened species such as the Leadbeatter’s Possum.

All proceeds from the the Resort’s dingo experiences are reinvested into caring for the alpine dingoes and expanding school and visitor education programmes.

“Plus from this year visitors who book a dingo walk via our estore can also make an optional $5 or more donation to the Australian Dingo Foundation, which is the fantastic not-for-profit organisation that Rowdy, Warragul and Bunji all came from” said Amon Bradshaw.
