African wild dog Conservation Research Project – Mozambique


2003-2010


The African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) is one of the carnivores the most threatened with extinction in the world (listed as “Endangered”, with criteria C2a(i), in the IUCN Red Data Book, 2008), the second most endangered (after the Ethiopian wolf, Canis simensis) of the only continent it inhabits and the first in sub-Saharan Africa. In 2004, the species has been completely extirpated from 25 of the 39 countries it once occupied. This document shows the results of the determination of African wild dog distribution and abundance in the 9 northern districts of the Sofala province, the role of extrinsic ecological factors on African wild dog population, its interactions with other carnivore and with people living in the area.
