Returning to the financial district of London, where he once worked, PWF Trustee Nick Dyer was invited to be the keynote speaker at an Explorers Against Extinction event aimed at raising funds for Painted Dog Conservation. The event was hosted at St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace.
Explorers Against Extinction
Explorers Against Extinction runs fundraising and awareness campaigns to promote the conservation of rare and endangered wildlife and the protection of their natural habitats.
For the first time, they will be including the endangered painted wolf as one of their target species! Explorers Against Extinction aims to raise to $10,000 for the Zimbabwean based non-profit.
Painted Dog Conservation
Painted Dog Conservation is dedicated to protecting painted wolves in and around Hwange and Mana Pools National Parks in Zimbabwe. PDC focuses on reducing the number of painted wolf deaths caused by snares, vehicle incidents and human-wildlife conflict. They run a rehabilitation facility for rescued and injured painted wolves in the hopes they can one day be returned to the wild.
After all, every wolf counts!
PDC also conducts conservation, education and outreach programmes in local communities. They employ over 60 people from the surrounding area to run these programmes.

Stepping up to the party yet again, wine in hand, was Jeremy Borg from Painted Wolf Wines, who generously donated the beverages served on the day.
