About the Painted Wolf Foundation

Our aim is to reverse the downward trajectory of the species by investing in transformational change.

The Painted Wolf Foundation’s objective is to secure the future of the painted wolf (Lycaon pictus). We aim to achieve this by focusing on three areas:

To raise awareness and funds for this relatively unknown creature and elevate them to the top table of conservation

To support conservation organisations in the field that aim to conserve or restore painted wolf populations;

To foster, fund and facilitate collaborations between organisations to encourage knowledge sharing and spreading best practice

The Painted Wolf Foundation is a charity registered with the Charities Commission of England and Wales. It was founded in 2018 by Peter Blinston, Executive Director of Painted Dog Conservation, Nicholas Dyer, award-winning wildlife photographer and entrepreneur and the late Diane Skinner, megafauna specialist and pioneering community conservationist.

Our goal is to double the number of painted wolves within three decades.
