How you can help

The endangered status of wild dogs means that it is especially important for us to be able to monitor their numbers so that we can anticipate and hopefully prevent further declines. However in order to do this we need your help...

Your photographs of the wild dogs you see on your safari can help us to keep track of wild dogs in Tanzania. Each wild dog can be individually recognised from photographs through unique white and tan blotches on its coat. If you send us your photographs of as many members of each pack you see as possible, together with some rudimentary information about where and when you saw your wild dogs, you will help us to monitor wild dogs across the country. In return we can tell you whether the wild dogs you see on your safari are known to us, and if so a little of their history.

Please download the Dog Watch Campaign leaflet, which gives details of how to provide your data.
