    Our logo represents what we believe to be the most important pillar of working as part of a conservation dog field team:

    DOG AND MAN WORKING TOGETHER IN TRUE PARTNERSHIP

    We took our inspiration from that time, tens of thousands of years ago and just prior to domestication, where ancient man and wolf hunted collaboratively for mutual benefit - neither one in control of the other. With this in mind, we commissioned amazing artist @ettore.mazza to design our logo.

    We hope it resonates with all of you out there who love partnering with dogs as we travel across wild spaces in search of the vital data and understanding that we need to support global conservation efforts.
