Born Free USA Global Field Projects

Ethiopian Wolves

Published 04/18/11

In an attempt to prevent the looming extinction of the Ethiopian wolf, one of the world's rarest carnivores, Born Free USA has waged an extensive campaign to vaccinate them against rabies. One of the most beautifully patterned and handsome of wild dogs, the Ethiopian wolf is down to only a few hundred animals, although that is more than there were a few years ago when it was listed as critically endangered.

The species is officially listed as at risk, particularly from a new threat, rabies, a fatal and transmittable disease that was brought into the region by domestic dogs, which in turn were brought by people.

Watch a video about this project! And find out more by visiting the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme's website.

Please consider making a donation to help us do all we can to ensure the long-term survival — and growing repopulation — of the Ethiopian wolf.
