240 Wild Dog Collars Fitted to Date

The daily monitoring of endangered species plays an important role in ensuring their survival in the wild. It helps us to continuously assess their condition and report on it timeously, to allow informed management decisions and effective action to be taken when needed. This is particularly vital when an animal is caught in a snare and immediate action is needed to free the animal. However, it is always best to anticipate and attempt to prevent such situations.

Wildlife ACT has developed anti-snare plates that are fitted onto the sides of collars, mostly Wild Dog collars such as in this photo. These plates are fitted on with pop rivets where a snare might hook onto, and can prevent a snare from pulling tightly around the animal’s neck. These plates may also provide the animal with enough time to struggle and break free from a snare before they are asphyxiated.

To date, Wildlife ACT has helped collar over 240 Wild Dogs, and through intensive monitoring, treat over 140 individuals from snaring and other injuries.
