Wildlife, Conservation & Bio-Security Dogs 

B.W.Y Canine has extensive experience in training and deploying dogs globally to assist with wildlife, conservation and bio-security. 

Using the skills and experience gained with our detection dogs, we are more than qualified to help tackle wildlife crime and assist with conservation and bio-security issues.

These unique services offered by B.W.Y Canine are available to wildlife organisations, animal charities, governments, conservationists, biologists, ecologists, developers and utility providers.  Wildlife, conservation and bio-security dogs provide a far less invasive, faster, highly efficient and cost-effective method of searching.

Wildlife Crime

Working in airports, container ports, public seaports and other major transit points, our wildlife detection dogs can detect illegal wildlife products hidden in vehicles, luggage, cargo and shipping containers.

Wildlife detection dogs working in these environments can prevent traffickers and smugglers from exporting and moving prohibited wildlife products, giving customs, Police and border control officers the edge in tackling and disrupting the illegal wildlife trade.

Specialist dogs can also be used to stop the illegal wildlife trade before it has even started. Out in the field, our dogs can be used to locate traps, guns and ammunition used to kill vulnerable and endangered wildlife – stopping poachers in their tracks.

Conservation Dogs

  • Live Animal Detection.

Our conservation dogs are trained to locate live animals and can clear areas of protected and endangered species effectively and efficiently, saving our clients time and money.

  • Carcass Detection.

Every species of bat is protected under EU law, and surveys to establish their mortality rates around wind turbines, new roads and construction sites are now commonplace. B.W.Y Canine can assist you with work in this area.

  • Products of Animal Origin (POAO).

B.W.Y Canine has experience at an international level in assisting and advising detection dog units in the fight to tackle and disrupt the illegal wildlife trade. Detection dogs can be used to search public seaports, container ports, airports and even road blocks for high-value illegally poached POAO such as ivory, bush meat, pangolin scales and shark fins.

  • Scat Detection.

One of the most effective ways to determine species population size and measure the success of reintroduction projects in a designated area is to perform DNA tests on animal scats. Our detection dogs are given discrimination training on other ‘similar’ scats to ensure they only locate the specific scat required. This unique service can be replicated for any species. 

Bio-Security Dogs

Bio-Security detection dogs play a vital role in helping to protect countries against foreign pests and diseases. Bio-security detection dogs can be used in conjunction with other bio-security strategies and detection technologies to help protect agricultural industries, the environment, economies and human health.

B.W.Y Canine’s bio-security detection dog teams can be deployed at public seaports, container ports, airport terminals and even at mail, delivery and freight facilities. 

This type of detection is becoming increasingly important due to the year-on-year increase of international passengers, cargo and mail items crossing borders on a daily basis, placing increased pressure on existing bio-security controls.

Our bio-security detection dogs are fast, versatile and can play an important role in strengthening your biosecurity systems in response to the growing global bio-security threat.
