Owen Pointon now supports the Durong Dingo Sanctuary (where pure dingoes are kept safe) through sales of his artwork that he has recently donated.
From Durong Dingo Sanctuary:
“The Durong Dingo Sanctuary, owned and run by Simon Stretton since 2008, seeks to provide a small area of peace where pure dingoes are kept safe from the perils of 1080 baiting, trapping, and shooting.”
“Simon aims to establish future breeding programmes to ensure pure genetics live on, in addition to education, awareness, and experience for the local and wider community.”
“The Durong Dingo Sanctuary is the only dingo sanctuary of its type in Australia and is situated in the South Burnett Region of Queensland in natural bush settings. Being only 75 kilometres from Kingaroy and close to the road that leads out west, it is a suitable drop in point for tourists and grey nomad adventurers.”
“The sanctuary is open all days 9am to 5pm, except Friday, which is by appointment only. Admission is by generous donation. For more information, contact Simon.”

About the Film Maker, Jennifer Frei
“James Cook University’s art degree has assisted me with intercepting the filming industry where I have discovered an immense passion to create short films while enjoying Cairns’ glorious tropical environment. I also love being around people and interacting with my film subjects as I created their promotional films. While my passion in art lies in photography and film, I have been known to work in many different mediums.”
“My intentions in the near future are to further develop my skills in special effects and 3D animation and integrate this into my career in film making. I have started a Vimeo channel where some of the films I’ve already produced can be seen at my Vimeo Page”
