About African Wild Dogs (Lycaon pictus)



There are fewer African Wild Dogs in the wild than there are tigers. Also known as Painted Wolves and Hunting Dogs, there are fewer than 550 wild roaming dogs remaining in South Africa. They are the second most endangered carnivore in Africa (after the Ethiopian Wolf) and are a victim of the human-wildlife conflict.

Due to their endangered status, African Wild Dogs are the main focal species on our Endangered Species Conservation Programme, based across five wildlife reserves in South Africa. The project’s intensive monitoring of African Wild Dogs is done 365 days a year.

The ultimate goal of the wildlife conservation programme is to reintroduce painted dogs successfully back into their historical ranges and ensure the protection of the population into the future.
