This publication updates the first Canid Action Plan published in 1990, and aims to set the agenda for canid conservation into the 21st century. The first two parts deal with the classification and evolutionary ecology of the canids followed by the latest information on their distribution, biology and conservation status. Currently nine species are threatened with extinction; three are Critically Endangered (Darwin's fox, red wolf and island fox), three are Endangered (Ethiopian wolf, African wild dog and dhole) and three are Vulnerable (dingo, bush dog and Blandford's fox). Part three of the plan considers major issues in canid conservation, including exploitation and disease management, and part four outlines the actions needed.
