Serengeti Wild Dogs Conservation Project, Serengeti

The Serengeti Wild-Dog Project was established through a cooperation of the University of Glasgow with the Tanzania Wildlife Research Institute (TAWIRI) in 2012. The main aim of this project was to ensure long-term conservation of the African wild dog population in the Serengeti ecosystem.

The question was raised when wild dogs had not made their way naturally into the western parts of the Serengeti so several of the most severely threatened packs of wild dogs were identified for relocation to suitable habitats in the western part of the Serengeti National Park, where they wouldn’t be in conflict with humans and could be safely monitored by the Project.

Our Philosophy

Asilia operates in some of the most spectacular wild places in Africa.  Yet they are fragile, under immense pressure, where the needs of both people and wildlife are often juxtaposed.

Empowering both people and places is essential if the habitats, upon which we all depend, are to survive.

We’ve selected a number of reputable and effective local partners as the drivers of these interventions.   These partners tackle the issues of education, community upliftment and wildlife conservation in meaningful ways, getting to the source of the problems rather than treating the symptoms.
