The Endangered Wildlife Trust's Guard Dogs for Conservation Project works with dogs to help protect our precious wildlife in a number of different ways.
Scent detection dogs: The EWT has sniffer dogs based at game reserves, airports, and other key locations where illegal trafficking might occur.
Livestock guarding dogs: The EWT has placed more than 120 livestock guarding dogs on farms in important areas, leading to a reduction in livestock losses of up to 95%.
Anti-poaching dogs: The EWT has deployed anti‐poaching dogs, which are trained to track people, find arms and ammunition, and help with the detection of spent cartridges at crime scenes.
