The African Wild Dog Conservancy has completed the first comprehensive large-scale surveys of wild dogs and livestock depredation in Kenya’s North Eastern and Coast Provinces. Villager reports of livestock depredation will enable them to identify hotspots and provide much-needed information on the distribution of other predators in the region, such as lions, leopards, spotted hyenas, cheetahs, and caracals.
The Conservancy has launched a large-scale conservation education outreach program in the region, working with local stakeholders, school teachers, and headmasters to teach schoolchildren and adult community members about the value of protecting the environment and the vital role of carnivores play in maintaining healthy ecosystems.
The African Wild Dog Conservancy kindly provided program descriptions.
