Fighting for the African Wild Dog’s future
Investec supports the EWT’s Carnivore Conservation Programme’s work with endangered African Wild Dogs.
Investec has supported EWT's Carnivore Conservation Programme since 2013, funding the research and monitoring of the wild dog populations in the Kruger National Park (KNP). Wild dog is South Africa's most endangered carnivore and the population in the KNP is the largest and most viable in the whole of South Africa, numbering 250 dogs in 22 packs. Therefore, the conservation of this population is critical. The current focus on the project is to empower key communities on the western boundary of the KNP to promote safe, sustainable and practical solutions for the co-existence of wild dogs and humans living in the communities in this area of the park.
