Review for CONSERVATION CANINES - University of Washington Foundation , Seattle, WA, USA
As conservation biologist, I have always been passionate about protecting wildlife and minimizing human impacts on study species. As a volunteer with Conservation Canines I was able to aid in projects that fulfilled both of these goals all the while working with hard-to-home rescue dogs.
By using high-drive detection dogs to locate scat and other samples, long after a target species has left the area, these folks are able to contribute amazing amounts of detailed data to further the conservation of threatened and endangered species. Currently they are even working to create a genetic map of pangolins, the world’s most trafficked mammal, to help put a stop to poaching and trade!
As if this weren’t enough Conservation Canines also works hard to provided education outreach to rural schools to expose children to conservation career choices and to broaden their views on protecting the world around them. The layers of great work seem to go on and on! The incredibly passionate people that help with this program, and the dogs, deserve all of the best support and Greatest NonProfit status!
