Friday Night Naturalist: Conservation Canines

Friday, March 15, 2024

520 East CR 44 Eustis, FL

From guarding livestock in Africa to sniffing out pythons in Florida, dogs are helping conserve wildlife, plants, and habitats in many - and sometimes surprising - ways. Discover the many roles canines play in the conservation field. You will also meet an “eco-detection” dog-in-training and see the steps that go into teaching these dogs to search.

Kris Whipple is a conservation education professional with over 30 years in both the conservation and animal training fields. She is also a certified force-free trainer, certified canine scent detection handler and certified instructor. She currently competes in AKC scent trials and other canine sports with her scent detection partner, Sprig, a 4-year-old Cardigan Welsh Corgi.
