Thank you to our generous sponsors for supporting Waterberg Wild Dog conservation!
Toyota South African Motors
Toyota SA is supporting the conservation of the Waterberg Wild Dogs by providing a 2021 Toyota Hilux DC 4x4 and operational funding to WWDI for 2022.
The funding and Hilux will be used by the WWDI team to monitor the Waterberg Wild Dog population in the field and meet with community members to spread awareness, provide education, and further the understanding about the wild dogs and the human-wildlife conflict occurring.
The Aspinall Foundation
The Aspinall Foundation partnered with WWDI to provide the funds needed to fit 3 GPS tracking collars to Waterberg Wild Dogs. These collars are currently on two males in the TOOG Area Breeding Pack and on one male on the Mabula Game Reserve in Rooiberg.
The tracking collars allow the WWDI team to learn new information about their range and mitigate human-wildlife conflict by notifying community members when the pack moves through private lands via an early-warning system.
