An Ethiopian Wolf patrols its territory in the Web Valley. This remote and inaccesible area is one of the last remaining strongholds of the Ethiopian Wolf. It is superb wolf habitat due to the very high density of rodents
it supports. However, even here the wolves are seriously threatened by human encroachment and diseases passed on by domestic dogs.
Ethiopian wolves are the world’s rarest canid and Africa’s most endangered carnivore. Today just over 400 survive in a handful of scattered populations in the Ethiopian highlands.
