Only 500 remain! The Ethiopian wolf is the rarest dog species in the world. Ethiopian wolves, with their distintive red-tinged coat and bushy tail, are only found in the highlands of Ethiopia and are Africa’s most threatened carnivore.
The biggest, most immediate threat to Ethiopian wolves are lethal diseases carried by domestic dogs such as rabies and canine distemper.
Other threats such as habitat loss, due to high-altitude agriculture and overgrazing by domestic livestock, road kills and persecution are also a concern.
Help care for a wild animal and you'll receive an exclusive adoption pack containing a soft toy, animal story, species fact sheet, certificate and glossy photo. Plus, you'll also receive our Adopt magazine twice a year with updates on all our wildlife adoptions – perfect for animal lovers.
Adoptions last one year (those paid by monthly direct debit roll over until cancelled).
Funds from your adoption will help support The Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme (EWCP). Through EWCP, we support conservation, monitoring and management of Ethiopian wolves, along with disease prevention and control through vaccination programmes. You can help ensure their future by adopting our Ethiopian wolf family below.
This family of wolves lives in Ethiopia’s Bale Mountains and are monitored by the Ethiopia Wolf Conservation Programme (EWCP).
Less than 500 Ethiopian wolves survive – they’re rarer than the giant panda! Led by an alpha male and female, all pack members help care for their pups.
Adopt them to help us fund the vital work of EWCP.
Help us provide the protection they need.
