Previous part: Snow Leopard
Endangered animal: African Wild Dog
Recognized by their distinct, colorful fur, the African Wild Dogs have disappeared from many parts of Africa. They used to be seen largely over the continent, but are now only found in its southern parts as well as the south of East Africa.
The population of these canines is continuously declining because of conflict with human activities, which causes both accidental and targeted killings, as well as habitat fragmentation and infectious diseases amongst their packs.
