African Wild Dog conservation (AWDC) is a long-term research project established to conserve the endangered African Wild Dog conservation in Zambia.
The study which was originally based in the lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia, with its rugged escarpment to the north, the river, and its numerous islands, lagoons and floodplains attracts most of the wildlife, has now been expanded into the South Luangwa National Park, which is one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world.
Habitat fragmentation and persecution were the major causes of the wild dogs’ historic decline, and these factors causes still represent the principal threats today. The current project is designed to implement management strategies developed from the previous research and to conserve a large population of African wild dogs in eastern Zambia.
