The distribution map below shows a mosaic of national parks and reserves in Kenya in relation to the survey area outlined in red. The good news is that African wild dogs are protected in those parks and reserves in which they are found. Because they range widely, however, they often wander outside these areas, coming into conflict with people. Where possible, wildlife corridors between parks and reserves need to be created to minimize potential conflict. These ecological corridors would also contribute to a healthy gene flow. Large-scale connectivity is needed to make this truly viable.
