Conservation Appeal

Please Help Grow Our Pack

Our pack of 'conservation dogs' help scientists and rangers collect vital information about foxes and feral cats that would otherwise be difficult to obtain.

How? They do it in a non-invasive way by sniffing out the information — often in the form of scat (faeces). Scat is useful because it reveals a lot of valuable facts about an animal.

We are working hard to prepare four puppies for this important work. Marbee, Milly, Macey and Flash are in training to sniff out foxes and feral cats.

With your help we can train them to protect precious wildlife on Phillip Island, including the Little Penguins. Thank you for your support.
