Learning in Lockdown – EWT’s Wild Chats on Wild Dogs
Over the past few months since the COVID-19 Pandemic changed our lives beyond description, the Endangered Wildlife Trust has put together a fascinating series of “Wild Chats: Together Apart”, showcasing their work and giving wonderful insight into the world of painted wolves, and the many other species EWT works to conserve!
