← Back to Did you know? The Okavango Delta is not a UNESCO World Heritage Site…

African wild dogs or painted hunting dogs are just about to disappear with only 3-5,500 remaining in the wilds of as few as 14 countries. They are ring-fenced by livestock, fences and growing human population that bring canine diseases with them. We need to ensure that sanctuaries like the Okavango Delta remain for sensitive species like wild dogs, which need vast territories devoid of humans.
