The Ethiopian Wolf Project is doing amazing work in Ethiopia, in conjunction with the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme.

Top predators are threatened everywhere, and this includes the oft-overlooked African wolves; only 425 survive in small populations and the main threat facing them is rabies from domestic dogs.

But Ethiopian Wolf Project is working hard to raise awareness and, along with their partners at the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme, help give wolves a chance to survive and keep the area's ecosystems healthy and balanced.
