Education and Awareness

Wild Dog Conservation Malawi aims to conserve the previously unstudied wild dog population in Malawi through applied research and education. We are conducting education and awarenes activities in collaboration with project partners The Department of National Parks and Wildlife Malawi (DNPW), and Lilongwe Wildlife Trust.

The aims of the education project are to:

  1. Raise awareness of the importance and role of wild dogs and carnivores to biodiversity conservation
  2. Determine human perceptions of wild dogs and other carnivores to identify barriers to conservation practice
  3. Minimize human wildife conflict and promote coexistence between carnivores and people in surrounding communities

Education Activties

Working with project partners we will conduct community talks and distribute leaflets and information packs around the study area to enage with local communities and increase understanding of wild dogs and other carnviores.

We are currently seeking further funding to develop education activties and teacher training packs that can be conducted at the Lilongwe WIldlife Trust Education Centre and then can be taken to the local communities surrounding Kasungu National Park and Nyika National Park.
