Kerrie Guppy’s book about personal 30 year journey to detox her life. One of the chapters within the book shares how the “Working Dingoes Saving Wildlife” (WDSW) program came into existence as the first of its kind in the world.
— CORRESPONDENT NEWS Author Kerrie Guppy has announced the upcoming 2016 release of her new book in Australia. The book chronicles her ongoing 30-year journey towards detoxing her life. Her journey began when she was 17 years old, soon after her mother, in her early 40s, was diagnosed with breast cancer.
One of the chapters within the book shares the story of how the “Working Dingoes Saving Wildlife” (WDSW) program came into existence as an alternative to the use of 1080 poison in conservation work.
1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) is a bait poison used to control rats, possums, and other pests and the stoats which eat the poisoned rats. 1080 is biodegradable, dilutes quickly in water and does not build up in the food chain.
Since the late 1950s, 1080 has been exported in raw form from the United States primarily to control the Common Brushtail Possum. Using 80% of the worlds supply, New Zealand is the largest user of biodegradable 1080 poison. In 2011, 1080 has been declared “effective and safe” by the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment.
Conservationists like Guppy Disagree. They are concerned about areas where 1080 is applied and the security of potable water supplies and 1080’s possible connection to Australia’s extinction crisis.
The WDSW project is the first of its kind in the world. The reintroduction of Canis Dingo, Australia’s terrestrial apex predator into the grassy woodland ecosystem at Eynesbury will boost ecosystem diversity, naturally suppressing feral rabbits, cats & foxes and increase native wildlife & vegetation regeneration.
Zoologist Employees from Eynesbury asked conservation and land management services company, Aus Eco Solutions, owned by Guppy and her husband, Kristian, if they could come up with an alternative solution to the use of 1080.
“My book will provide ideas for others to pursue in detoxing their life,” said Guppy, “and the chapter on the Working Dingoes Saving Wildlife project highlights how a dedicated group of people can make real changes to the biodiversity of our planet through pursuing their ideals!”
Guppy says there over 80,000 chemicals in our industrialised world and 1080 is just one of the poisons that could be eliminated with toxin-free alternative projects such as “Working Dingoes Saving Wildlife”
Guppy is a wife, mother of four children and entrepreneur in conservation and land management.
