The uMkhuze section of iSimangaliso has recently added seven new wild dogs

The #uMkhuze section of #iSimangaliso has recently added seven new wild dogs to introduce new genetics and increase the population as other animals have moved out. Wild dogs are managed as a metapopulation, with frequent exchanges between protected areas. (They also tend to move with relative ease of their own accord). The three females from Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park and four males from Tswalu have been placed together in a boma to bond, and will remain there for up to six weeks before release into the Park. Thanks to Conservation Manager Eduard Goosen for the image
