The Project 

The painted wolf, painted dog or African wild dog is one of our planet's most enigmatic predators. It is also among its most highly endangered.

PAINTED WOLVES: A WILD DOG’S LIFE is a stunning coffee table book and is part of a campaign to raise awareness of the species and build a movement to ensure the long-term survival of this little-known creature. We would love your help! After this Kickstarter, closes, please visit our website to find out more. 

Help us complete the project and more

We had already raised £75,000 ($95,000) to go towards the self-publishing of this fantastic book and start our campaign. Through this Kickstarter campaign, we reached our initial target of £20,000 within 24 hours and the book is now being printed and distributed. 

A BIG BIG thank you to all our backers. But we really want to raise as much as possible in order to provide some significant support to painted wolf conservation across Africa. 

Like you, we are part of a pack of people who are deeply concerned about the painted wolf. Any amount we raise over and above this on Kickstarter, plus all the profits from all subsequent sales of the book, go to raising awareness about this highly threatened creature and supporting painted wolf conservation across Africa through the Painted Wolf Foundation

The Book

PAINTED WOLVES: A WILD DOG’S LIFE will be a stunning photographic exploration of one of the most endangered and enigmatic predators on our planet.

The book has been five years in the making and is written by two people who really know and love the painted wolves.

Nicholas Dyer is an award-winning wildlife photographer and has spent the last six years tracking and photographing three packs on foot in the Zambezi Valley. Nick brings the painted wolves into your living room and imagination, telling the story of how they live in the wilds of Africa, far from the destructive influences of man. 

Peter Blinston has dedicated the last twenty years of his life to saving the painted wolf from extinction and is Managing Director of Painted Dog Conservation in Zimbabwe. Peter takes you into the tough world of conservation describing the many challenges he faces and the innovative and successful solutions he has introduced. 

The book is illustrated with more than 220 stunning images. Each photograph telling a story in its own right and bringing alive the captivating and mysterious world of the painted wolves and the lives of those around them.

PAINTED WOLVES: A WILD DOG’S LIFE measures 29cm v 34cm and contains over 300 pages and more than 220 incredible large format images. It is printed on high-grade 200gsm paper by Opmeer BV, one of the leading top-quality printers in the Netherlands. The size and quality of the book are designed to be impressive and sit proudly on your coffee table.

PAINTED WOLVES: A WILD DOG’S LIFE is a collectable book that has taken us five years to produce and is designed to last you a lifetime. 

The Painted Wolf

It has taken us five years of our lives to create a book which tells you what is so fascinating about the painted wolf. It is hard to get that across in a few lines here, but we will have a go…

The painted wolf is a unique and remarkable creature. On the one hand, it is Africa’s most successful predator, yet on the other it is an incredibly social animal, caring deeply for its family’s wellbeing in a tight-knit pack.

The alpha female leads the pack behaving like a caring queen and general and is the only one to breed. Other members of the pack serve as dedicated aunts and uncles, teachers and playmates, hunters and defenders to a brood of beautiful but cheeky little pups.

Despite their sometimes fearsome appearance, to those that come across a pack, the abiding words that burn into our souls are gentleness, playfulness, generosity, caring, sharing, responsibility, tolerance, kindness and love.

Yet for the last 100 years, the painted wolf has endured an outrageous onslaught of persecution and loss of habitat, which has seen their numbers decline from 500,000 a century ago to only 6,500 today. This 99% reduction in their population has put the painted wolf’s survival on a knife edge.

The painted wolf must stand alongside the rhino, the elephant and the tiger, not only as a symbol of the wilderness, but as a worthy recipient of our concern, our funding, and our conservation action. Yet, hardly anyone knows they exist.

The Cause

Among all the endangered species in Africa, the painted wolf should be at the top of the list. They have endured a century of human persecution and now we are perhaps more enlightened they surely deserve all the help we can give them to recover.

Today painted wolves are a protected species, but their numbers are still dwindling. A critical risk is that so few people know that they exist, and even less care. Elephants, rhinos and lions dominate all the headlines. 

Of course, these animals deserve all the attention they can get, but the painted wolf just wants a seat at the conservation top table. This book is part of our campaign to raise their status and give them a profile they deserve. 

You can help by buying the book or one of the incredible rewards other passionate painted wolf lovers have donated. Once our costs are covered, every penny will go to the Painted Wolf Foundation.

The Painted Wolf Foundation

Nicholas and Peter set up the Painted Wolf Foundation together to raise awareness of the species and get them the recognition they deserve. We figure that the more people know about them, the more they will love them and the more they will want to preserve them.

We also want to shine a spotlight on the incredible organisations working hard across Africa that keep them from becoming extinct and raise funds to support innovative and effective programmes that they want to introduce.

Please see our website paintedwolf.org for more information and some stunning painted wolf images.

Every penny of profit will go to the Painted Wolf Foundation and be spent intelligently and wisely. 

Join our campaign to share this remarkable creature with the rest of the world

    Bath Time: Nicholas Dyer Print
    Blacktip’s family at play – Mana Pools

    Nick waited patiently in the baking sun for an hour hoping for the painted wolves to arrive in the hope of getting a backlit shot as the sun set. Blacktip’s pack with nine puppies came to the pool just before sunset and started their games. In this picture one of the yearlings leaps out of the pool to ambush the overexcited pups as they kick dust into the light of the sinking sun.

    Prints will be on high-quality paper, 60cm on the longest edge, and signed by Nick. Each will be signed and numbered from a limited run of 50, come with a certificate of authentication, and will include a signed copy of Painted Wolves: A Wild Dog's Life.

    A pup moves in to investigate – Mana Pools

    Nick had just photographed Blacktip’s pack perform their greeting ceremony and was lying on his stomach nearby. Blacktip gave the signal that it was time to move off to a pool by the Zambezi for a sundowner. To Nick’s delight, the pack filed directly passed him not taking much notice. But one pup came to investigate this strange creature lying flat on the ground and ended up sniffing his lens as Nick lay perfectly still and ecstatically happy.

    It’s tough being the leader of the pack and a mother of nine boisterous pups. As her pack continues to play, Blacktip finds some quiet time and looks out across the beautiful Zambezi as the sun kisses the top of the Zambian escarpment. We would give a lot more than a penny to know this lovely creature’s thoughts.

    The strength of the pack is the wolf – Mana Pools

    This is one of Nick’s all-time favourite portrait shots of a painted wolf. Like most of the painted wolves, he knows it by name but for this picture he just wants to call it “Painted Wolf”. This is because the expression captures everything that is wonderful about these creatures. Strong, noble and proud yet at the same time soft, kind and vulnerable. To him it is a face full of love.

    A New Beginning: Nicholas Dyer Print

    A New Beginning: Nicholas Dyer Print
    A pack is formed – Mana Pools

    After the legendary alpha female Tait died, her daughters teamed up with a dispersal of Blacktip’s sons to form the new Nyamatusi Pack. This was weird as the boys were also Tait’s grandsons – a sort of aunt and nephew thing going on. This picture was taken shortly after they had just met when they were all excited to be with one another and yet to choose a leader. Wicket (with the collar) initially became the alpha female and fell pregnant, but she sadly was killed by a hyena. Tammy (on the left) eventually became the alpha female even though she was only two. Her alpha male was Twiza (not pictured) who sadly died this year.

    A Remarkable Creature: Print

    A Remarkable Creature: Nicholas Dyer Print
    Tris of the Nyakasanga – Mana Pools

    This Picture opens the first chapter of the book. This is what Nick and Peter wrote:

    “On the opposite page stands a creature that most of the world doesn’t know exists and, of those that do, many don’t care. She is not a dog, she is not a wolf, she is not a hyena. She is, nevertheless, very special.
    Her name is Lycaon pictus and she is known as the wild dog, Cape hunting dog, African hunting dog and painted dog. She is also known as the painted wolf, which is the nearest translation to her scientific name and the label we choose to use.
    But more importantly, to us she is Tris of the Nyakasanga Pack who roams the Zambezi Valley – the daughter of Blacktip and Hornet and granddaughter of Tait and Jed. Like the rest of her pack she is a unique creature; individually patterned, with a distinct personality and well deserving of her own name.
    With so few left in the world, they are all important – every single wolf counts. Who knows what her future role might be in the regeneration of her species.
    To know them is to love them, and the purpose of our book is simply to share with you what we know, what we have seen and what we love.
    For those who have had the privilege of seeing painted wolves, we hope you are reminded of that special experience and that this book reignites joyful memories and tells you more about their lives.

    For those who have yet to experience this delight, we hope to show you that, in remote parts of the African continent, there lives a little-known animal that is very remarkable indeed.”
