2021/22: Wild dog research in Namibia

Updated: Jun 15, 2023

$1965 for trail cameras, batteries and SD cards for external data storage

At the end of October 2022 Helen Reynolds started her fourth year of her PhD on investigating "The importance of pack structure to the conservation management of African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus)'. Worth Wild Africa sponsored US$ 1,965 towards equipment to help Helen further her research and gather meaningful data.

Helen says: "I have spent the last 12 months in Namibia collecting data and after a brief 7 weeks analysing it back in the UK there are now 6 key objectives to the research as this has posed further questions to explore. The aim is to write up at least one of these chapters over the next 12 months for journal publication. In the last year, I have also presented an academic poster at the 4th International African Painted Dog Conference in USA, which was very well received and resulted in several interesting questions. The wealth of data I am achieving for this research through my WWA grant for camera traps and other equipment is phenomenal!"
