Firstly, Happy New Year and a few weeks! We hope that you have a wonderful year ahead of you.
We are so delighted that the BBC Earth production, Dynasties, is coming to BBC America this weekend, Saturday the 19th January 2019. Nick and Des worked on the production of this wonderful series for four years. Together with BBC Earth production team and Sir David Attenborough they were involved in the filming of the wildlife series, Dynasties which focused on five animal families around the world. The Dynasties Painted Wolf focuses on the Painted Wolves (Lycaon pictus) and the stars of the show are our very own painted wolves from Mana Pools. One of the main dogs from the episode is Tait – as you might be able to guess, named after the Murrays’ daughter! Please take a look at theseries guide here for more information.
It has been a great honour and adventure for the Bushlife Safaris team to have worked alongside Sir David and the BBC film crew while filming this. We are exceptionally grateful for the BBC’s support in elevating global awareness for the conservation of this endangered species and will continue to do this through the Bushlife Painted Wolf Conservancy. Our conservation team on the ground is Bushlife Support Unit if you would like to follow the work that we do, and our funding body is called Bushlife Conservancy.
