Dingoes were once common on Fraser Island, but are now decreasing. The island dingoes are reputedly some of the last remaining ‘pure’ dingoes in Eastern Australia and to prevent cross-breeding, dogs are not allowed on the island. According to DNA-examinations from the year 2004, the island dingoes are “pure”.[102] However, skull measurements from the 1990s detected crossbreeds between dingoes and domestic dogs among the population.[103]
