Well, how happy are we?
Conservation Dogs has won the “Innovation and Creativity Award” at the 2014 Flintshire Business Awards in recognition of our pioneering projects in conservation using our specially trained wildlife detection dogs to assist with conservation needs, ecological surveys and wildlife crime detection.
In the largest category of the night, Conservation Dogs fought off 9 other nominees to win the prestigious "Innovation & Creativity Award". Sponsored by Glyndwr University, the award was to identify and reward the company which launched the most innovative and new product/service
The award recognises Conservation Dogs initiatives to help stop the illegal wildlife and ivory trade by becoming the first UK Company to win a contract in Gabon to supply and train dogs to detect ivory, leopard skin, iboga root and pangolin scale all of which are under threat from the illegal wildlife trade in Gabon. It also recognises the work that we done with conservation projects here in the UK, with the detection of the scat of pine marten, dormice, great crested newt, bats and mice for surveying purposes which give conservationists a huge amount of information of the species, its health, habitat, breeding and population.
Of course, none of this would be possible without the hard work and amazing abilities of our CONSERVATION DOGS ...
So to our fantastic dogs;
Twister, Luna, Kim, Kim2, Ned, Sasha, Lumi, Cooper, Charlie ... Well Done.
