African Painted Dog Conservation

Painted dogs are classified as Endangered by the IUCN Red List with an estimated 6,600 adult dogs in the wild. The main threats to the painted dog are habitat loss, human-animal conflict (hunting farm animals or getting caught in snares meant for other animals) and they are also susceptible to diseases which are transferred from domesticated animals.

Painted Dog Conservation in Zimbabwe

Dublin Zoo provides annual financial support of this species via Painted Dog Conservation in Zimbabwe. Since 2016, Dublin Zoo has been providing funding specifically towards the Iganyana Children’s Bush Camp. The objective of the bush camp is to teach local children conservation concepts, an understanding of ecological relationships, the value of biodiversity, an appreciation of painted dogs and the role they play in ecosystems, and to inspire an emotional attachment to the beauty and complexity of nature.

Dublin Zoo also participates in the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme for African painted dogs.
