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 wildlife and the ecosystems of Hawaii
  • Detect endangered species for research and conservation purposes

In addition to conducting field surveys with our professional dog-handler teams, we train volunteer pet dog-handler teams who conduct field work or contribute to data gathering and feasibility assessments through pilot projects.

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.
