There are an estimated 550 African Wild Dogs (also known as African Painted Wolves) left in South Africa, and a meager 3500 in the whole of Africa.
Wildlife ACT needs your help:
- We have helped to develop anti-snare tracking collars. These collars not only help monitors find individual animals on a daily basis, but also gives a dog trapped in a snare put out by poachers a fighting chance of survival.
- These specially reinforced and riveted collars can prevent the animal from choking to death, and also send out an emergency signal once a dog is stationary for an unnatural amount of time, giving monitors and rangers time to respond to an emergency. This means that a collar can literally save an animal's life!
