The Kruger Park Project: Kruger is home to one of the last viable populations of wild dogs in South Africa and draws public attention to the plight of wild dogs and has provided important scientific information on the ecology of the species. An understanding of population dynamics in the park is essential for developing national strategies to improve the conservation status of these species. A novel approach has been developed to estimate population size as individuals have unique coat patterns the identification of individuals from photographs is possible. Visitors are asked to send their photographs in so that individuals can be identified, counted and the overall population size estimated. This information has been used to improve management programs for the wild dog both in Kruger National Park and outside.
