    South Africa is filled with all kinds of animals, but how many of you have heard of this one? The African Wild Dog –also known as the African Painted dog – because of its unique coat.

    You may have not heard of them because this species has been seen as a pest to the region, so much so, they’ve been hunted to near extinction. But now, conservationists are working towards building the pack's biodiversity and,ultimately, saving the species.

    This next film by director Emily Cross is called Part of the Pack. Make sure to stick around after the credits to hear from the filmmaker herself.
