African Painted Dog researcher Peter Blinston fell in love with these unique dogs while watching documentaries growing up in his native England. He has been working to protect painted dogs for twelve years now and serves as Managing Director for Painted Dog Conservation. Jealous Mpofu grew up with African painted dogs in his back yard in Zimbabwe and now has committed his life’s work to saving them from extinction.

Painted Dog Conservation is based in Zimbabwe and works to save the African painted dogs from extinction through anti-poaching units, rehabilitation of injured dogs, re-introduction of these dogs into the wild, monitoring of various packs, and education of local communities.
