Sniffing for Science. Conserving Nature.
Our mission is simple. We help advance conservation efforts by providing professional canine scent detection services and education programs for researchers, public/private corporations, schools/universities, and public health agencies.
MCDI Pollinator Program
Everyone on the planet depends on pollinators to survive…That’s why we feel it’s our responsibility and honor to deploy our incredible working dogs to help save honey bees.
Sniffers for Scholars
We offer masters and doctorate-level students a highly unique, innovative and earth-friendly tool to conduct environmental research—Professional canine scent detection services.
We offer educational visits tailored to any group; school-aged, college, professional or public. Programs can be given at your school, community center, office building, or other site, and can include an appearance from our working dogs. A typical program length is 30–60 minutes and can include a presentation and a scent detection demonstration.
The MCDI canines are experts in scent detection for environmental science and conservation efforts and can learn any detectable scent, making them a critical asset in today's society.
