Painted Dogs Conservation - Dublin Zoo is Ireland's most popular visitor attraction, and welcomed almost one million visitors last year.

Painted Dogs Conservation

Painted dogs (or African hunting dogs) have disappeared from much of their range and are classified as Endangered. It is estimated that only 3,000 remain, making them one of Africa’s most endangered species.

Since 2009, Dublin Zoo has been providing financial support for the in situ conservation of this species via ‘Painted Dog Conservation’ in Zimbabwe. This organization aims to protect and increase the range and numbers of painted dogs through hands-on conservation, education, community involvement and international support.
