Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Pollinator Program - Canine Scent Detection

Our Pollinator Program protects local pollinators by providing boots-on-the-ground, canine scent-detection surveys to locate bumblebee nests, diseases, frass, and other pollinator targets. Location is the first step in conservation. Many pollinators are in severe decline due to lack of habitat and chemical poisoning. Our teams can serve as the first line of defense for pollinators, locating native pollinator populations to assist researchers and scientists with invaluable data.

Population(s) Served

The CDCI Canine Finders are experts in scent detection to help advance conservation efforts. Our teams help protect endangered species, combat invasive species, locate elusive species, and build community one sniff at a time.
