Black Backed Jackal

I am delighted to say that I have been approached by the author of A Field Guide to the Larger Mammals of Tanzania for permission to include this image of a Black Backed Jackal in the guide.

The book is due for publication in June 2014, but is available to pre-order on Amazon now.

The author royalties are being donated to the WCS Tanzania program and used to support the work of the Tanzania Carnivore Program, which is involved in surveying carnivores around the country, developing and implementing conservation action plans of the large carnivore species, and developing and testing methods of reducing human carnivore conflict around the country.

A Field Guide to the Larger Mammals of Tanzania

Larger Mammals of Tanzania


Home to the Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania offers some of the finest big game watching in the world, from elephants and rhinos to chimpanzees and lions. This field guide covers all the larger mammals of Tanzania, including marine mammals and some newly discovered species. Detailed accounts are provided for more than 135 species, along with color photos, color illustrations of marine mammals, and distribution maps. Accounts for land species give information on identification, subspecies, similar species, ecology, behavior, distribution, conservation status, and where best to see each species. The guide also features plates with side-by-side photographic comparisons of species that are easily confused, as well as first-time-ever species checklists for every national park.

  • The definitive, most up-to-date field guide to the larger mammals of Tanzania, including marine mammals
  • Features detailed species accounts and numerous color photos throughout
  • Provides tips on where to see each species
