Ruaha Carnivore Project 2019 Annual Report

Ruaha National Park is the second-largest national park in Africa, home to an amazing variety of wildlife. The Ruaha Carnivore Project works in the park and the surrounding ecosystem to conserve carnivores and protect the livelihoods of people. In their 2019 report, delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can read all about their incredible work on behalf of carnivores and people. Read more here.

Carnivore monitoring across this huge area requires the collaboration of safari guides at lodges throughout the park. 26 sightings of painted wolves were recorded by this network, providing invaluable information for RCP’s monitoring work. In addition, painted wolves were recorded through the innovative Community Camera-Trapping programme. Painted wolves score the highest amount of points – 20,000! – due to their endangered status. Benefits from this project, worth $90,000 reached 40,000 people.
