How you can help...Representing an evolutionary line that is unique to Africa, painted dogs are amongst this ravaged continents most endangered species. It is estimated that a mere 3,000 remain in the wild -many in small, non-viable, isolated populations. We provide support to projects in Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
With a strong commitment to community development and conservation education, our methods are working. We rely totally on the generosity of individuals and organisations alike to continue our work.
