MOST RECENT

Become Part of the Pack. The Painted Wolf Foundation has been launched to raise awareness about this much threatened and ignored species, and to support organisations that conserve #paintedwolves in the field. Wildlife ACT is proud to be a member of this group which will help to increase the support-base and understanding of one of our focal species - the #paintedwolf.

Six years in the making, the Painted Wolf Foundation is launching the most comprehensive book on painted wolves ever produced, whereby 100% of the profits will go towards their #conservation.

It’s National Wildlife Day - a day dedicated to raising awareness of endangered species as well as preservation & conservation efforts made around the world. It’s essential to recognize the importance of protected national wildlife parks, zoos, aquariums, and sanctuaries. We had the opportunity to work with a white rhino recently in South Africa, meet a wild dog at a wildlife sanctuary, and see tons of amazing wild animals at Kruger National Park. It made me realize that we need to be doing everything in our power to protect these wonderful creatures 🦏♥️ #nationalwildlifeday #saveanimalsdrinkwine #saverhinos #savewilddogs

‘Profile’ of success...
.
Alpha Male, post successful hunt on a rainy day in Botswana, that I was incredibly lucky to witness.
With beautiful coloration, lean athletic frames, long skinny legs and endearingly large ears, African Wild Dogs are very deceptive. They are one of the most successful predators found anywhere on the planet, with a kill rate per chase of more than 85%. However, they have to be this successful due to the company they share within their habitat, losing around 50% of their kills, ranging from small Impalas to Wildebeest (over 10 times their bodyweight), to other larger carnivores such as Hyenas, Leopards and of course Lions. The biggest threat they face though, is from habitat loss, disease, persecution and poaching. Thankfully there are now some great conservation programs in place, so that these animals can hopefully always be a wonderful sight to see and hear in Africa, including a wonderful new book from @nicholasdyerphotography that is really worth checking out and supporting...

African Painted Dog Fact Friday! No two painted dogs have the same coat pattern. Much like humans have different features to tell each other apart, this helps the dogs know who is who in the pack! Credit to https://www.actforwildlife.org.uk for the photo k9xball.com

African Wild Dogs have a fascinating social hierarchy. You may even consider them to be altruistic. Like other pack animals there is a hierarchy with a breeding alpha female and male pair. As nomadic creatures, they are constantly on the move. However, when a new litter of pups are born they settle down, at least for a little while. Everyone in the pack looks after the pups. At first, the pups are fed regurgitated meat from a hunt, but once old enough, they are taken to the kill and given first choice over the spoils.
If you haven’t already, hurry now and be part of the pack protecting the last 520 Endangered Wild Dogs in South Africa. #SaveWildDogs at the link in the bio.

Yip Yip hoo-ray as the Wild Dogs may say. We are well over the halfway mark for our fundraising goal! A massive THANK YOU goes to all who have donated so far. Every little bit makes a difference! We now have enough funds to purchase not one, but two tracking collars.
Wild Dogs have few natural enemies, with the exception of us, humans. Often misunderstood and viewed as pests they are prone to human-wildlife conflict. Tracking collars are vital to helping us protect the remaining 520 Endangered Wild Dogs left in South Africa from habitat loss, snaring and diseases like canine distemper and rabies.
We only have 85,000 ZAR (USD 5,300) left to go to reach our fundraising goal. Thats enough for two collars! Help us save this Endangered animal that’s so vital to Africa’s ecosystem. #SaveWildDogs. Link in bio. 📷 Photo by @villierssteyn

#DidYouKnow that the scientific name for the African Wild Dog, Lycaon pictus, means “Painted Wolf”? This refers to their beautifully patterned coats. Each Wild Dog has its own unique coat pattern with patches of red, black, brown, white and yellow fur.

#Repost & Support! 🐕 @endangeredwildlifetrust ・・・
We have rare footage of nine new African Wild Dog puppies from the only free-roaming pack in South Africa.
These little balls of fluff made their first tentative steps into the outside world in late July. Now, at a month old, the close knit Waterberg pack is working together to raise these pups.

This milestone would not have been possible without two of the adult Wild Dogs being outfitted with tracking collars. These collars enable us to track and monitor their movements, helping us protect them and the next generation from conflict, snaring and disease.
Your support is key to the survival of the remaining 520 Endangered Wild Dogs in South Africa. Help #SaveWildDogs and donate at the link in the bio by 31st August.

Finding Wild Dogs is like trying to find a needle in a haystack! They range widely over a vast landscape, sometimes covering an estimated 75 km in a week. This makes them difficult to track and monitor which means they are more susceptible to human-wildlife conflict, snaring and diseases such as canine distemper and rabies.
With 5 days left for our Wild Dog fundraiser, we need your support to help us collar and track them. By collaring Wild Dogs we are better able to track their movements over a vast area and protect them. We still have R125,000 to go for 4 collars. Help Wild Dogs and #Donate to #SaveWildDogs at link in the bio by August 31st.

Our NAS Dubai Science teacher and STEAM Coordinator Dan O'Hara has had a very memorable summer volunteering with The Wildlife ACT in South Africa. 'The critically endangered African Wild Dog was our priority species. Our work focused on colloring the dogs, tracking them and analysing data on their movement patterns. If you look closely in the photos you can see the collars on the dogs. The teamwork and intuitive behaviour of the pack and their efficiency in hunting was wonderful to witness. The bonus of course was seeing all the other wildlife species in the park including four of the big five. This is a must do trip for anyone with a passion for conservation and wildlife and I look forward to sharing more of this fascinating trip with the students when we return to school'. #wildlifeact #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #nature #endangeredspecies #wildnfree #savewilddogs

Love #wilddog, Love this photo by @willbl and Love this post from the amazing organization @empowersafrica -#didyouknow that African wild dogs (or painted wolves as they are also known) are the second most endangered carnivore on the African continent? There’s a true risk of them becoming extinct in our lifetime as they face more and more threats from humans including the destruction of their habitat and snare poaching.
These beautiful canines were photographed by @willbl in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park, one of the few places they can still be spotted- and to see the dogs in the wild is a true privilege and one that we hope remains.
