Occupying the same habitats as tigers and leopards, Asian wild dogs – or dholes – are often overlooked and are the forgotten predator. These communal pack hunters are efficient hunters and can take down prey, such as guar, that are 50 times their weight using unique whistles and howls to communicate. Dhole are the only species in the Coun genus and it is likely that less than 2,00 remain in the wild worldwide. Their biggest threat is habitat loss. As dholes lose places to eat and reproduce, so do their prey. The low density of prey throughout much of their range does not enable populations of dholes to survive. Wildlife Alliance is protecting one of only three forests in Cambodia that supports viable populations of this wild dog. You can help protect dholes, their forest home, and their prey by sponsoring a ranger station in the Cardamom rainforest.
