Conservation Dogs

(Open Group)

Detection dogs are an efficient, accurate and non-invasive way to collect crucial conservation data. They can be trained to locate wildlife scat (feces) samples and detect invasive weed species, animals that live below the ground and aquatic organisms invisble to the naked eye. Dogs are also being used to combat the illegal wildlife trade by uncovering illegal snares and detect ammunition, guns, poisons, snares, ivory, rhino horn and pangolin scales. 

This group needs a Group Manager with the expertise to build networks, answer questions, support the posting of user reviews and information, and identify new frontiers. Interested? Contact the WILDLABS.NET Community Manager.
