A heart for conservation

Maria was our guide and gave a very good overview of the project. The art on display was brilliant. The 800m walk along the raised deck was nice.

Museum was very interesting but small. Different type of gifts inside. The painted/wild dogs were in a pen to be eventually released back in the wild.

A lovely museum which tells you an awful lot about this wonderful breed. You also get the opportunity to view some of the Wild Dog Ambassadors who live at the site (due to not being able to be released). A lovely way to spend an hour or so learning about these fascinating creatures.

We have been lucky enough to see a pack of these dogs in Kenya a few years ago and they... More

The staff here care so much about these endangered animals. The display tells a compelling story following the short and difficult life of one dog; it helps you to understand the complicated issues surrounding endangered species in Africa.

A very modern museum created to educate local school children about the plight of the endangered Painted Dog. Fascinating murals depicting the life of Eye Spot and sobering to think that this entire facility is reinforced by poachers' snares. Supported and sponsored by the Perth Zoo in Western Australia.
