1000km in 30h with 3 wild dogs - how’s that for a road trip?
Remember that Wild Dog search back in September? The team from Wildlifevets.com and the EWT outdid themselves in their second attempt & successfully darted the young females of the pack in November!
Wild Wonderful World funded the veterinary costs for the relocation of three wild dog females from the Kalahari to Zululand in Kwazulu-Natal South Africa. These females will get the chance to bond with some males and form a new pack. Where reserves are fenced off to protect both wildlife and people, translocations like these are all part of managing the meta population of Wild Dogs in South Africa & ensuring the survival of this highly endangered species. Incredible work by the team! One female was collared to ensure we can monitor their movements in their new home.
You can do something too: help us fund more tracking collars or make a general donation to our Frontier Projects - dedicated to supporting costs for innovative research & conservation projects!
Thank you to our donors for making this possible and to Chris Smith from Wildlifevets.com and the EWT for their dedicated work in the field!
