Last month African wild dogs were reintroduced to Malawi, forming the first resident packs in 20 years! In a historic effort led by African Parks in partnership with the Department of National Parks & Wildlife and Endangered Wildlife Trust, 14 dogs were brought from South Africa and Mozambique to two of Malawi's southern parks: Liwonde National Park and Majete Wildlife Reserve.

It's a thrilling milestone for conservation in Malawi and we're excited to work with Liwonde National Park to provide monitoring support for their pack over the weeks and years to come.

It's great to hear such a strong stance from the new Director-General of Malawi's Anti-Corruption Bureau, Martha Chizuma, at the launch of a new report, The Role of Corruption in Enabling Wildlife and Forest Crime in Malawi, produced with support from us.

Ever wondered what it takes to count the animals in a park? We supported African Parks with their bi-annual surveys of Majete Wildlife Reserve and Liwonde National Park. Using a transect method in both parks that took over 61 hours, a total of 29,426 observations were recorded.
