The decline of the African wild dog, an endangered predator endemic to sub-Saharan Africa, is well documented. Only 3,000-5,000 animals remain in the wild. 95% of Namibia’s population (c.750 individuals) range outside protected areas and are subject to widespread persecution by livestock farmers.
This study aims to:
(ii) develop necessary conflict mitigatory measures.
Options for the appropriate and wise use of wild dogs will be developed in collaboration with the emerging communal conservancies of the Otjozondjupa region.
