Help us save African wild dogs and other wildlife from brutal snare wires set by poachers

Being accidentally caught in wires set by poachers is the greatest cause of wild dog death in our study area, but recently this threat has increased significantly. We urgently need your help to avoid a fast approaching wildlife snaring crisis.

Accidentally being caught in wire snares set by poachers for bushmeat continues to be the greatest threat to African wild dog survival in our study area, and we predict the situation to be even worse this year given the harsh economic situation of the country.

Fighting poaching is an ongoing struggle for us. Please watch this short video to find out more about our work, and why we urgently need to tackle the wildlife snaring crisis. African Wildlife Conservation Fund saving African Wild Dogs in Zimbabwe We have noticed a marked increase in snaring, having had to attend to three wild dogs injured from snare wires in the past few weeks.

In this campaign we are appealing for support to be able to immediately remove wires from African wild dogs and other wildlife when reported, as well as for proactive efforts to clear wires from the field before they have a chance to hurt the animals.

An anonymous donor has very generously pledged to match any donations raised up to a total of US$ 2,000 - so please support!

Your donation will cover the following:

1. Scout wages. Keeping our men in the field is absolutely vital to be able to locate, treat, and monitor animals injured from wires.

2. Immobilisation drugs, swabs and gauze, anesthetics, darts, saline water, and other top-up materials needed to treat the animals and their wounds.

3. Rations and fuel for comprehensive snare sweep efforts, where teams of men are deployed in hot spot areas for poaching, and strategically and carefully cover the area removing the snare wires from the field

Please help us protect these animals from cruel and senseless deaths.
