Conservation Dogs of Hawaiʻi (CDH) is the environmental conservation component of Parts Per Trillion Foundation.  CDH facilitates the research and use of ecological detection dogs in the Hawaiian archipelago.

Our mission is to utilize the extraordinary olfactory abilities of dogs to:

  • Detect invasive species to mitigate their impact on the wildlife and ecosystem of the Hawaiian archipelago
  • Detect endangered species for research and conservation purposes

We have 2 divisions within the organization:

    1. Nose Work for Conservation pet dog/handler teams that contribute to research for invasive species detection, and conduct volunteer field surveys.
    2. Professional dog/handler teams that participate in studies and conduct field surveys.

Conservation Dogs of Hawaiʻi is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.  Our Tax ID # is 81-4566994.
