Protecting SA’s last Wild Dogs
May 23, 2019 @ 18:30 - 21:30
The Waterberg is the last remaining area in South Africa that still has free-roaming Wild Dogs. Please join the EWT for an evening devoted to the conservation of these special animals.
Derek van der Merwe, EWT Carnivore Conservation Programme: Limpopo Regional Coordinator, will chat about how this project strives to promote and protect these Painted Wolves of the Waterberg, as they are affectionately referred to, and to negotiate safe passage with local landowners to ensure that they can remain free-roaming, as well as to promote local ecotourism in the area.
A Waterberg Wild Dog experience will be auctioned on the evening, and Wild Dog art donated by Alice van Jaarsveld will also be up for auction. Guests can enjoy a sumptuous buffet dinner, accompanied by delicious wine donated by Painted Wolf Wines, while contributing to the conservation of the Wild Dogs of the Waterberg.
