Committed to the Survival of Africa’s most Persecuted
Carnivore - The Painted Dog

  • About Painted Dogs

    Also known as the painted wolf, African Wild Dog and Cape Hunting Dog, the African Painted Dog is the most endangered large carnivore in Africa, Red-Listed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Browse through these pages to learn about threats to the dogs, about their incredible social systems and pack life, and about just how different they are from any other dog on the planet (three to five million years of evolution separates them from the other canids like wolves and domestic dogs).

    How you can help...

    Representing an evolutionary line that is unique to Africa, painted dogs are amongst this ravaged continents most endangered species. It is estimated that a mere 3,000 remain in the wild -many in small, non-viable, isolated populations. We provide support to projects in Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

    With a strong commitment to community development and conservation education, our methods are working. We rely totally on the generosity of individuals and organisations alike to continue our work.
