The National Wild Dog Action Plan have today launched a new video highlighting the success of the cluster fencing project in central western Queensland.
 
The aim was keeping livestock in and invasive species out, such as wild dogs.
 
They're currently erecting 2500km of fencing as part of the program which is protecting 1.5 million hectares and encompassing 124 properties.
 
Prior to the fences being built, the impact of wild dogs was costing producers in western Queensland millions of dollars a year from stock losses and reduced lambing percentages.
 
Member of a Wild Dog Advisory Group Chris Edgerton says that the cluster fencing is a vital answer in supporting and saving the wool industry.

Earlier this year a southern NSW farmer built a 32-kilometre fence around his property after a spate of wild dog attacks.
