This is a great idea. If their "trophies" are discovered they can't make any money. So this is a really good beginning to hitting the poachers pockets. The poor animals that had to suffer nonetheless but maybe in the future there will be less animals to die for greed!

Great news...we could certainly use the help of the dogs. I hope it makes big dent in catching poachers.

I hadn't realized that they'd expanded the field so much.I'm really proud of the steps they've taken here.
