THE Yorkshire Wildlife Park’s fundraising campaign to help save one of Africa’s most endangered large carnivores, the painted dog, from extinction has received an international seal of approval.

Conservation ambassador Maria Ngambe flew from Zimbabwe to visit the park to praise staff for raising £3,000 towards the cost of sending a veterinary task force to carry out vital conservation work.

The ground-breaking park, which is home to three painted dogs joined forces with Wildlife Vets International and the Painted Dog Conservation to launch the appeal last year.
