Securing the Future of the Painted Wolf
A detailed analysis by the Painted Wolf Foundation and Wildlife Conservation Network on what can be done to reverse the downward trajectory of the painted wolf.
Securing the Future of the Painted Wolf provides a detailed analysis on the status of conservation of the painted wolf together with a theory of change on what is needed to reverse the downward trajectory of the species.
The report is a result of a year-long consultation with the conservation community led by Diane Skinner and is produced in collaboration between the Painted Wolf Foundation and the Wildlife Conservation Network.
Securing the Future of the Painted Wolf provides a comprehensive insight into the myriad threats facing the species across Africa and the conservation measures many incredible organisations are taking to mitigate against them.
The report shows that despite these valiant efforts, painted wolf populations remain under extreme pressure with very few areas showing increasing numbers.
Effective conservation measures have proven to be transformational in certain areas, but a severe lack of funding prevents their wider implementation which reduces the species long- term chances of survival.
However, as the report explains, despite this bleak picture, the outlook is not without hope.
Securing the Future of the Painted Wolf offers a theory of change that has the potential to double painted wolf numbers within the next 30 years. To implement this theory, it is the ambition of the Painted Wolf Foundation and WCN to launch the Painted Wolf Fund along the lines of WCN’s other highly successful wildlife funds which include the Elephant Crisis Fund and the Lion Recovery Fund.
This beautifully designed 146 page report contains over 50 new images taken by Nicholas Dyer and has been printed by Opmeer who were responsible for printing “Painted Wolves: A Wild Dog’s Life”.
All proceeds from the report will go to the Painted Wolf Foundation.
