Rotating image of painted dogs

Painted Dogs, also known as African Wild Dogs, are unique to Africa and they are among this continent's most endangered species. It is estimated that less than 7,000 remain in the wild. The Painted Dog population in Zimbabwe is one of the last strongholds of the species and we are committed to their conservation. Our conservation methods and our work with the local communities are beginning to have a positive effect on the outlook of the Painted Dog species.

Running for Wild Dogs

Twenty years ago a group of school friends did a 1,000km fundraising run across Zimbabwe to raise money for conservation efforts for African Wild Dogs. They are doing the run again this December and hoping to raise as much money as they can for the dogs and to support our education programmes.
