Cheetah & Wild Dog Conservation Planning Process
ZSL has recently joined a range wide conservation planning initiative aiming at reversing declines in the distribution and abundance of African wild dogs and cheetahs.
Cheetahs and wild dogs have indeed very similar conservation needs, and so planning for one species is likely to benefit both.
To achieve that goal, one of the first priorities is to map the distribution of current populations, and this entails collating data on the distribution and, where possible, abundance of wild dogs and cheetahs.
The project thus involves mapping wild dogs and cheetahs across their range, so if you have seen wild dogs you may be able to help!
