Painted Dog—Using Science to Conserve an Endangered Carnivore – slide presentation
Dr. Rasmussen’s lecture delved into the unique ecology of this enigmatic canid including pivotal research understanding; and how by understanding the painted dog in a landscape dominated by negative attitude and misconceptions lead to changing attitudes of Ranchers and the general public. He discussed steps taken to transform the fortunes of the highly endangered painted dog from perceived pest into a valued animal both within the local community and nationally; and to the birth of Painted Dog Conservation that is a conservation model for Painted Dogs.
