These Dogs Sniff Out Wildlife Crime –
At this very moment, with their noses to the ground, four-legged heroes are actively defending our planet. With keen olfactory systems and an ability to read human behavior, dogs are not only [wo]man’s best friends—they’re indefatigable allies in the fight for conservation. Based in Montana, Working Dogs for Conservation trains rescue dogs to sleuth out everything from illegal poaching to invasive species. Get to know the good dogs helping to protect the pale blue dot we all call home. There are currently over 30 dogs active on projects for Working Dogs for Conversation (WD4C) around the globe.
