Robin Sawyer, Senior Program Officer, Wildlife Conservation

Did you know that a dog's nose is estimated to be somewhere between 10,000 to 100,000 times better than a human's? The 300 million scent receptors in dogs' noses are able to detect different smells. As part of the WWF wildlife conservation team, Robin Sawyer is putting these noses to the test to find illegal wildlife products in air and sea ports. Learn about wildlife crime as Robin explains what kinds of products these dogs are looking for, how they're trained to spot them, and how these dogs are helping to protect species like pangolins and elephants.

Suggested grade level: 4th – 8th
