Canine Scentwork In The Natural World 

"Noses for Nature", a presentation all about the variety of ways that dogs are contributing to conservation. This is a rapidly growing field, with dogs deployed in tasks as diverse as detecting wildlife, sniffing out the scat of rare animals, helping to monitor the health of wild animal populations, protecting threatened species from predators, searching out invasive plants, and finding animal parts poached or trafficked in illegal wildlife trade. Join ecologist Amanda Freeman for a fascinating prevention on how the dog's amazing nose is saving wildlife.

I am a freelance ecologist, educator and writer based in Queensland, Australia. I provide ecological research and monitoring, education, training and writing services mostly for community groups and not-for-profit organisations. My family ran a small boarding kennels, and bred and showed cocker spaniels, so I grew up around dogs. Some of my favourite childhood memories are of being woken in the night so I could watch our well-loved dogs whelp. My father was as attentive a mid-wife as any labouring mother could wish for.

I was introduced to wildlife conservation and was struck with the realisation that I could study animals in the wild! That became my passion, even though there is a lot more desk work involved than I anticipated. I did work as a vet’s assistant while studying zoology at university and loved the interaction with pets and their owners. Just as well I wasn’t training to be a vet though – I found I am allergic to both cats and cows so not cut out for either small or large animal practice! My husband, daughter and I live in the forest with wildlife right outside our door. Chickens, bees, a pet python and a very needy cockatiel complete our family.
