THE STORY:

This summer, shelter dogs are getting a new “leash” on life…helping wildlife and people!

The so-called Conservation Canines are trained to sniff out wildlife scat and help conservation planners and land managers collect valuable data about wildlife populations.

They’re coming to New Mexico’s Jemez Mountains in August to help The Nature Conservancy and our partners protect a rare salamander found nowhere else in the world.

The furry tracking specialists will sniff out where the salamanders live so we can complete critical forest restoration in the Jemez Mountains without impacting the salamanders’ habitat.

These trained dogs work happily and eagerly 4-6 hours a day, motivated by the expectation of a ball reward given only when they find wildlife scat.

The obsessive, high-energy personalities of scat-detection dogs make them difficult to maintain as family pets. For these dogs, a home placement could mean returning to the shelter and possible euthanasia.

Conservation Canines provides a rewarding and satisfying alternative—a career in the field of conservation research!

You can help! Conservation Canines will have a critical role to play in helping us develop strategies to keep New Mexico’s forests healthy for generations to come. Your support is needed today to help fund the Conservation Canines research and improve how we manage New Mexico's vital forests.
