Wild dogs are the second-most endangered carnivore in Africa and most endangered in South Africa. From a population of 435 in the mid-1990s to just 132 dogs in 2009, the decision was taken to introduce a new pack of dogs to northern Kruger in the Shingwedzi region. There’s a lower density of lions in the north, which improves their chances of success, and this will hopefully stimulate the dispersal of packs from south to north in the park. Find the new pack of dogs along the Shingwedzi River – and look for its three-legged member called Foxtrot. If you see any wild dogs, contact Dr Antoine Marchal of the Endangered Wildlife Trust,
