What is Fauna & Flora doing to save African wild dogs?
Fauna & Flora is supporting wild dog conservation in several countries across their range, including Kenya, Mozambique and South Sudan. Its conservation efforts are focused on reducing human-wildlife conflict and reducing the incidence of disease.
For example, domestic livestock killed by wild dogs is purchased at a fair price to deter farmers from shooting dogs, warning signs are being put up on roadsides, and rabies vaccines are being distributed to communities nearest to wild dog habitats.
But there is still much to be done to save African wild dogs.
We need to continue our efforts to reduce disease transmission by providing more communities with vaccinations for their domestic dogs. We need to provide safe corridors to allow African wild dogs the space they need to survive, without coming into contact with human settlements.
Your support could help us put these crucial measures in place to protect wild dogs.
