African Wildlife Foundation's Canines for Conservation Program

We found incredible videos that highlight African Wildlife Foundation’s Canines for Conservation program, so we made them the focus of today’s blog post.

African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) created Canines for Conservation to train and certify specialized dogs, and their trainers, to canvas main shipping areas and detect the scent of poachers’ products, such as ivory or rhino horns, that are intended for shipment to the poachers’ customers.
