A bat's best friend

Rachael Flavell set up Paws For Conservation this year after working with detection dogs for 6 years.  Rachael & her team of canine companions now survey wind farms for bat and bird carcasses on a regular basis.  Dogs are great for conservation detection work as they are non-invasive, more efficient and cover areas far more quickly than human search teams, thus saving time and money. They do not assume or discriminate like a human could, making them a very effective ‘tool’ in assisting with surveys.  Find out about a typical day here
