Wild about wild dogs by Jocelin Kagan

Wild dogs are a uniquely African species. This lecture will focus on these animals which have survived for 1.7 million years but have been systematically shot at, had their dens destroyed and their pups killed since around 1900, diminishing the population to a mere 66 000 survivors of which there are 450 in South Africa.

They are now an endangered species. Their habits and social interactions will be discussed, answer the question whether they mourn and the power of the pack… and more.
