Working Dogs for Conservation is the world’s leading conservation dog organization.
Whether it's law enforcement, biosecurity, ecological monitoring, or environmental justice, WD4C consults, collaborates, and leads capacity building for detection, tracking, and discrimination dogs and handlers, all to make conservation happen around the world.
Our dogs can detect weeds before they break the surface, animals that live below ground, and or organisms invisible to the human eye, whether diseases or microscopic larvae.
We constantly strive to maximize the impacts dogs have for conservation. Pioneering new and innovative canine techniques, and combining dogs with other cutting edge technologies like artificial intelligence and laboratory methods, we make conservation more efficient, effective, and extend its reach.
