Abstract

Development of assisted breeding techniques can aid conservation & management of the endangered African wild dog (Lycaonpictus). Previous attempts to freeze sperm from this species have proven unsuccessful with sperm motility dropping to nearly 0% within 2 h of thawing. The aim of this study was to improve the freezing success of African wild dog sperm by testing two routinely used canine cryopreservation protocols.
