A breeding program for the African wild dog has been underway for the past twenty years to reintroduce healthy wild dogs back in to wilderness areas where they will have the best chance of success.
The dogs are bred in six breeding compounds in Mkomazi National Park to maximize genetic diversity. An extensive veterinary program has helped to improve their immunity to disease. Reintroductions are planned together with Tanzanian National Parks (TANAPA) and the team at Mkomazi who has committed to providing the know-how and resources to manage the breeding programs and reintroduction of the dogs into the wild.
