Preserving the Pack – Vodacom Red Wild Dogs Experience

The African wild dog is southern Africa’s most endangered carnivore and faces numerous threats to its survival.

In June, Vodacom Red and the Vodacom Bulls rugby team joined up with SANParks, the State Veterinary Authority and the EWT (Endangered Wildlife Trust) to observe first-hand what is being done to ensure the species is given the best chance to flourish.

The wild dog is a highly social animal where teamwork is the name of the game when it comes to pack dynamics as well as hunting for prey.

A little known fact is that the African wild dog has the highest successful hunting rate of all carnivores with close to 80% of hunts being successful.

The parallels that can be drawn between the wild dog pack and the Vodacom Bulls rugby team are obvious. Without teamwork, structure and persistence neither entity would be successful.
