Of the 13 members of the pack which had been gathered from two separate private reserves, 6 individuals needed to be collared for monitoring purposes. There were no funds available for this expensive equipment so the Foundation sourced and purchased the collars. The program has been very successful and at the last update, the pack has split and numbers 25 in total. The animals are monitored by teams using tracking equipment on a daily basis.
On the 14th June 2011 the successful collaring and release of a pack of 13 endangered wild dogs took place in the Mkhuze National Park, South Africa. The collars were sponsored by the ‘Forever Wild Foundation’
The magnificent endangered wild dogs of which only 500 remain in the South African wilderness .
