The role of Conservation Dogs, is to compliment and support wildlife research, ecological monitoring, data collection and survey. In particular, threatened species which may be difficult to locate using other means. They are trained to locate and passively indicate cryptic and sensitive endangered native animals; their carcasses, nesting sites, latrine sites, den sites and scats which may be hidden in heavy cover and hostile terrain.
Humans carrying out such work without the assistance of trained dogs can unintentionally be biased toward specific or easy to find animals. Dogs are significantly faster and more thorough, they can locate scents and scats from all individuals of the target species in the area, not just the most territorial and high ranking.
This in turn gives researchers, ecologists and conservationists more accurate data on which to base their findings.
Our dogs are fitted with GPS trackers and camera systems enabling accurate and real time recording and storage of data. Where time, budget and accuracy are critical to a project, Wildpro Detector and Conservation Dogs should be seriously considered.
Wildpro Pty Ltd, Detector and Conservation Dogs offer our services throughout Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Pacific.
