The best way to stop invasive species is to catch them early. Luckily, this is exactly where conservation detection dogs excel. While human searchers often can’t find invaders until after they have taken over, dogs are able to scent the first colonists, alerting us to an invasion before it moves past the point of no return.

WD4C has trained dogs to find Chinese bush clover in Iowa, yellow star thistle in Colorado, Rosy Wolf Snails in Hawaii, and brown tree snakes in Guam. Our dogs’ potential to find conservation targets is seemingly endless, and they have become an invaluable tool for protecting pristine habitats and eradicating invasive species where they have taken hold.
