Painted Dog Conservation is the latest front-line conservation organization to be added to our list of conservation & anti-poaching groups. Since 2002 PDC has operated a rehabilitation facility and clinic in Zimbabwe to support the health and future of African painted dogs (also called painted wolves). They also monitor wild packs of painted dogs for their safety while also collecting behavioral and genetic information to better understand the species and develop management plan for ecosystems with painted dogs. PDC has their own anti-poaching unit working closely with the Zimbabwe Parks & Wildlife Management Authority and Forestry Commission to provide direct-action against poaching and to reduce human-wildlife conflict. A visitor center in Zimbabwe is open to the public.
Painted Dog Conservation is registered as a charity in Australia, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, and United States. They have tax-deductible status in the United Kingdom and United States.
