Conservation dogs are dogs that are trained to sniff out evidence of specific types of wildlife species that scientists are trying to learn more about. These dogs help biologists understand where and the threat level of endangered wildlife species. Rogue Detection Teams are a Washington State based non profit that sends their dogs around North America to help different scientific researchers and government agencies. These dogs have worked all over the world and have helped different groups collect hard data in their fields.
- Conservation dogs are used to sniff out evidence of threatened and endangered wildlife species.
