A camera trap image of a bush dog in Veredas do Peruacu State Park in Brazil was recorded in October 2012 by WWF and the Biotropicos Institute. The bush dog, also called the vinegar or savannah dog, is often referred to as a ghost by researchers.
The 2013 Fuller Symposium explored how local and indigenous communities can empower themselves by managing their own natural resources—and in turn become a global force for conservation. This year’s one day event took place on November 13, 2013 at the National Geographic Society’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Wildlife migrations depend on natural wildlife corridors—passages that allow regular travel, seasonal migration or population dispersal of different species. Any barriers to this basic need are a threat to healthy wildlife populations. WWF works with businesses, government leaders, public and private land managers, hunters, anglers, farmers and ranchers to ensure wildlife connectivity is a part of all land and wildlife management decisions.
