Howl of 6 New Guinea Dingoes

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Imagine a dog that is as intelligent as an ape, acts more like a cat than a dog, climbs trees, and sings eerie songs in harmony. There is such a dog, the New Guinea singing dog, a wild subspecies of dingo. The wild Singers, which live in the high mountains of New Guinea, are a mystery because they are in such remote places and so shy of people, they are rarely sighted even by locals. Singer intelligence is apparent from those, currently perhaps 200 world-wide, kept and bred in captivity. They have extreme curiosity, constantly study the environment and people, and learn by observation to open doors, cupboards, refrigerators and windows. Like an elephant, Singers never forget what they learn. They are also supreme predators, ready, willing and able to attack any other animal. These natural traits make them a challenge to keep as pets. The captive Singers, in private ownership and in zoos, are there not to be domesticated, but as tamed ambassadors for their wild cousins. It is vital to get funding for studies of the wild Singers, and to provide for their protection in their native habitat. Anyone who admires dogs and meets a Singer will instantly understand how important it is to save this strange ancient wild dog and hopefully will join in working toward their preservation.
