African Wilddogs

Location Mozambique & South Africa
Category Wilddogs

The African wild dog is one of the most threatened carnivores in the world following its dramatic population decline over the past 30 years. On the African continent where it occurs exclusively, it is now the second most endangered carnivore (after the Ethiopian wolf), and the most endangered in sub-Saharan Africa.

It is estimated that about 6,600 adults including 1,400 mature individuals live in 39 subpopulations that are all threatened by habitat fragmentation, human persecution and outbreaks of diseases.

Saving the Survivors is passionate about the conservation of this species and we assist programs aimed at ensuring their survival.
