With less than 6,600 dogs left, the African Painted Dog is more at risk of extinction than the big cats of Africa. Their 80% hunting success rate helps regulate prey species which in turn plays a role in molding vegetation communities. Securing their future plays an essential part in stemming the loss of biodiversity and maintaining a healthy ecosystem.

All proceeds go toward Global Conservation Force’s African Painted Dog program. To learn more about Global Conservation Force’s African Painted Dog efforts, please visit
