Underdogs: The Fight To Save South Africa's Wild Dogs celebrates what is special about the African wild dog and looks at what makes it Africa's most efficient carnivore. With journalistic candour, Underdogs also explores the reasons behind the decline of the African wild dog and champions the efforts being made to secure its future in South Africa and beyond.
Acute senses, a lightweight body, unrivalled stamina and power in numbers may make the wild dog one of Africa's most successful hunters but these remarkable characteristics saw the species fare badly with the arrival of big game hunters in Africa in the late 1800s. This charismatic carnivore has been an underdog in its fight to find its place in a developing continent ever since. With a donation from each sale going towards wild dog conservation, Underdogs aims to make a real difference to the future of this endangered species.
