Africa possesses a secret weapon in the war against wildlife trafficking, which I discovered in my research for an exciting new series set in Kenya. Canines for Conservation stop traffickers before they can export illegal products, thereby preventing poachers from profiting off their murderous rampage. These incredible dogs fight the good fight every day.
As poaching rates continue to rise, Canine Detection Units are helping authorities sniff out illegal wildlife products. I’ve written about a dog’s unrivaled smelling abilities before, but never in this context.
