National Conservation Dog Day
Join us every January 19th to celebrate the incredible dogs who are helping advance conservation through scent detection of endangered, invasive, and elusive species.
With their odor-finding expertise, willingness to work, and ability to create unbreakable bonds, dogs (or "Finders," as we call them) are the perfect fit to work alongside humans to collect useful and reliable data for field scientists—and they do it in record time while having a low impact on the earth. These amazing beings deserve a day to celebrate their hard work!
Conservation Dogs Everywhere
Our organization is proud to be the creator of the official Conservation Dog Day holiday! On this day, January 19th, we celebrate the incredible work of conservation dogs who use their noses to protect the planet's health. From locating endangered species to sniffing out illegal wildlife trade, conservation dogs are working hard to ensure the health of our planet around the world. We are dedicated to training and supporting these amazing dogs and their handlers, and we urge everyone to join us in celebrating the official Conservation Dog Day.
