2019 in Review

S4W continued to work with Kim Edwards and Smudge the koolie to progress the dog’s training as koala scat dog, all on a volunteer basis. The dog is almost ready for final evaluation and will be used to survey Site 3 in the Lower Blue Mountains in Fy2020. Use of dogs at Site 2 in Kanangra-Boyd has not been possible due to year-round baiting for foxes and wild dogs making it unsafe. A border collie pup (named Groot) was purchased by K Leigh with a view to detection dog training when he’s old enough.
