EWCP uses a many-pronged strategy to reverse the Ethiopian wolf's decline. EWCP continue the research program which started the entire project, monitor population sizes, and research wolf requirements and natural history. EWCP also are protecting what remaining habitat they can along with the Frankfurt Zoological Society (especially the Bale Mountains National Park, which holds half the remaining Ethiopian wolves and half the mountain nyala Tragelaphus buxtoni). EWCP also manage a canid vaccination program, which vaccinates domestic dogs near Ethiopian wolf populations and prevents captive dogs' disease spread into Ethiopian wolf populations. This is like a similar project which was tried at the Serengeti (to protect other predator species) and proved successful. 93% of local domestic dogs are now vaccinated through EWCP, and they are also researching giving Ethiopian wolves oral vaccines through bait drops. Finally, EWCP convinces local populations that wolf protection is important. EWCP does this through various means: they provide many local jobs, support the community (like providing the schoolhouse's running water), educate locals concerning wolves, encourage conservation club establishment through local schools which initiate tree plantings and other activities which protect the environment, and attract ecotourism money which helps provide local jobs and community income.
The EWCP is run by extremely dedicated and knowledgeable people (I have met Claudio Sillero and he is very highly motivated and is also very highly regarded within the scientific community concerning his canid research) and your support will let EWCP continue their phenomenal Ethiopian wolf work. Do help EWCP save them, through generous donations.

Biology and Conservation of Wild Canids by David Macdonald and Claudio Sillero is the most complete book concerning wild canids available.
Handbook of the Mammals of the World, volume 1 Carnivores is an amazing book. It is extremely pricey, but if you want to know about all of the carnivores on the planet today there is currently no better book out there.
