Conservation Canines: How Dogs Work for the Environment — In-person Event

Isabelle Groc, author of  Conservation Canines: How Dogs Work for the Environment will hold an in-person event on June 8 in Vashon Island, near Seattle.

On Wednesday, June 8 at 4 pm, Isabelle is teaming up with Washington-based conservation detection dog program Rogue Detection Teams for an event hosted by the Vashon Center for the Arts in Vashon Island, just a short ferry ride from Seattle.

Groc will share stories from her book and guests will have a unique opportunity to meet special conservation canines that make a difference for wildlife. Rogue Detection Teams‘ co-founders Heath Smith and Jennifer Hartman will do a special demo with canine partners Pips and Filson and will show how they teach these unwanted, last-chance dogs to search for data from rare or endangered species.

Pips, featured in the photo at the top of this post, is part of this event. Groc first photographed him on a mission to track the scat of the elusive Haida Gwaii ermine nine years ago. This story is in the book, Conservation Canines: How Dogs Work for the Environment.
