Episode 108: African Painted Dogs with Dr. Greg Rasmussen

August 13, 2019

This interview was a real treat and one we highly anticipated. We were joined by Dr. Greg Rasmussen, who by all rights is the “Jane Goodall” of the African Painted Dogs. These are one of the most iconic and endangered animals on the African continent. We covered this incredible species in Episode 91: A Masterpiece, the African Painted Dog and hunted down Dr. Rasmussen to get his insight on his work in Zimbabwe with one of the most incredible species we have covered to date.

Painted Dog Trust

Please consider donating to the Painted Dog Trust. Your money will go directly to Dr. Rasmussen’s next research project, which he referenced at the end of the interview. African Painted Dogs are most vulnerable to automobiles speeding in the Zambezi Delta. Dr. Rasmussen’s latest project is trying to slow drivers down and he needs our support.
