Endangered Wildlife Trust – Wild Dog Project
The African wild dog is a member of Africa’s ‘Magnificent Seven’, and rightly so. But it is also one of its most endangered. The biggest population – numbering just 3000 – is in southern Africa. They are constantly threatened by habitat loss and human wildlife conflict. South Africa’s largest and most viable population of 250 dogs in 22 packs can be found in the Kruger National Park, where the Endangered Wildlife Trust has established its Wild Dog Project. The project aims to increase the range, number, and status of these animals by securing and expanding their habitats, finding solutions for co-existence with human communities, and supporting legislation to protect them. MCF donates to this important project annually through our fundraising event – ‘The Extra Mile Trail Run’.
