‘Bailey’ is the WORLD’S FIRST sniffer dog who is going to be able to sniff out wildlife that is being illegally traded across Indonesian borders! #BaileyWildlifeHero
We want to start working more in the beginning of the wildlife trade & prevent animals from ending up being illegally traded!
Wildlife rescue centers in Indonesia have huge challenges to care for the many animals handed over that have been rescued & confiscated from the illegal wildlife trade.
Returning these animals to the wild is a long process & to enable us to work more effectively at the BEGINNING of the chain, we wish to work at the source!
We are setting up transit centers in strategic areas & will operate the K9 Wildlife Unit to help us detect wildlife that is being traded.
Today we held a very succesful event – the Launching of the K9 Wildlife Unit at the Erasmushuis, Royal Dutch Embassy.
