Using Fraser Island in Queensland and Penguin Island in Western Australia as study areas, this paper examines changing management policies and practices with regards to human-animal interactions in wildlife tourism settings. In particular, the shifting relationships between people and dingoes, and between people and penguins, are explored in these Australian settings. Data drawn from interviews, observations and management policies show that as perceptions of wildlife change, management of human-wildlife interactions must also change.
