Africa's Wild Dogs

A Survival Story

There are only about 6,600 wild dogs left in Africa today yet these  critically endangered creatures have cast such a spell on top wildlife photographer and naturalist Jocelin Kagan that she is determined to help save them.

If left to their own devices, they are more than capable of thriving, as this sumptuous photographic natural history shows. Jocelin has called in world experts to add their latest findings about these resourceful, graceful and highly skilled family groups.

Nomadic predators whose territories range thousands of kilometres, they hunt co-operatively, preying on small herbivores. Non-confrontational, they form complex bonds as this fascinating book reveals.

Now restricted to small populations and threatened by some shoot-to-kill policies, habitat fragmentation, diseases from domestic dogs, climate change and snares, as well as natural predation from hyenas and lions, these born survivors, the African wild dogs, will be supported by all the royalties from this book.
