During November I was lucky enough to attend a 2 week Conservation Detection Dog Handlers assessment course with Kryus Ltd - this is part of a project with Biosecuirty For Life of which RSPB is a lead partner. The project aims to protect the 42 seabird Special Protections Areas (SPA's) around the UK from introduced mammalian predators and lead on biosecurity measures.

For more on this, and how detection dogs are joining the battle, have a read of the following blog - https://biosecurityforlife.org.uk/blog/2021-12-03-who-let-the-dogs-out-a-nose-for-island-biosecurity
