African Wild Dog Research

About the species

 

Our Work

Dr. Briana Abrahms has worked in Botswana, home to one of the last remaining strongholds of African wild dog populations, since 2011. There, she partners with the Botswana Department of Wildlife and National Parks and one of Africa’s longest-running conservation NGOs, Botswana Predator Conservation, to study, monitor, and protect African wild dogs and other large carnivore species. Her work on wild dog conservation includes efforts to restore habitat connectivity, reduce human-carnivore conflict, understand climate change impacts, and conduct educational outreach to tourists and local community members.
