This aspiration is behind developments in tourism around African wild dogs on game farms in South Africa. This tourism ties in nicely with the conservation strategy for wild dogs in South Africa. Because no sufficiently large piece of land remains in the country that can support a self-sustaining, unmanaged wild dog population, a constellation of smaller, satellite (mostly private) reserves has been managed for small dog populations to function as a natural metapopulation. This involves intervention to manage movements of individuals between these subpopulations to obviate the adverse effects of crowding and inbreeding.
In some areas today, trapping is largely done by farmers trying to reduce predation on livestock or poultry, and this affects maned wolves among others. However, even for these people, the sale of fur can be economically important, for example, representing up to a quarter of the annual income of some ranch hands in Patagonia. Although arguably hunting can increase the value of many canid species, their 8 Ecology and Conservation of the Maned Wolf: Multidisciplinary Perspectives exploitation is becoming increasingly controversial.
