The project aims to: establish the baseline characterization of African wild dog's spatial-temporal ecology in QNP; unveil the biogeographical affinities with other African populations and provide insights into the population structure, diversity and gene flow at a regional scale. This baseline information will contribute to; 1) the conservation of such an emblematic predator, by understanding this canid spatial-temporal patterns and it major drivers; 2) the sustainable management of the park and it's wild-dogs populations
