WD4C likes to be first. Our founders were the first to train dogs to detect wide-ranging carnivores non-invasively, to uncover illegal snares in Africa, and to find invasive plants and insects, subterranean animals, and invasive fish. 

We’re working on being the first to use conservation dogs to detect disease in free-ranging wildlife, an application that could have enormous impacts on wildlife, ranching, and local economies.
