African Wild Dogs

Wild dogs are poached and killed off by farmers to protect their livestock and crops. Painted Dog Conservation is based in Zimbabwe and has a sole mission to repopulate the 7,000 or so African Wild Dogs left on the continent. The conservation sends out a team of rangers that patrols where herds are known to dwell to make sure poachers don’t pose a threat to them. The program also has its own rehabilitation facility to heal and re-introduce the dogs into the wild. Your small donation will go a long way to protect this dying species.
