In this new series, conservation dogsperson and Red Dog Ecologist Ella Watkins reports back from the field where she is working with and learning from some of the best practitioners in the conservation detection industry worldwide.
Over the next few episodes, Ella will be talking about the work she is undertaking with previous podcast guest Rita Santos and Hera from Dogs For Nature, searching for grasshopper egg pods in the south of France.
Our logo represents what we believe to be the most important pillar of working as part of a conservation dog field team:
DOG AND MAN WORKING TOGETHER IN TRUE PARTNERSHIP
We took our inspiration from that time, tens of thousands of years ago and just prior to domestication, where ancient man and wolf hunted collaboratively for mutual benefit - neither one in control of the other. With this in mind, we commissioned amazing artist @ettore.mazza to design our logo.
We hope it resonates with all of you out there who love partnering with dogs as we travel across wild spaces in search of the vital data and understanding that we need to support global conservation efforts.
Conservation K9 Training supports the sharing of knowledge and best practice within the conservation dog industry through our Podcast, Training Camps and International Clinics, and by partnering, mentoring and collaborating with researchers and dog teams around the world.
