Visitors to Research the Endangered Predator - The Wild Dog - "The painted wolf"

Posted by Ryan and Michelle on Tue August 5, 2014 in Special Offer.

Visitors to Kruger can help with research into this endangered Predator.
Despite being top dog when it comes to hunting, the WILD DOG faces an uncertain future.

The sixth photographic census of wild dogs will be conducted in the Kruger National Park from August 2014 to April 2015.  Visitors are requested to submit detailed sighting information of wild dogs in Kruger along with full body and side profile photo's, which researchers will use to identify individuals from their unique coat patterns. The south of the park has higher densities of wild dogs than the north.

VISIT Mackers Riverbend which is a mere 24kms from the Phabeni Gate. Our winter special at R250-00 per person per night will enable you to make a difference - let's get those camera's clicking!

DID YOU KNOW:  Wild dogs have darkish bodies with a lot of black and a highy visible white contrasting patch at the end of the tail?  This allows the cubs to see the beacon clearly.
