Aquatic Invasive Species are one of the greatest threats to our biodiversity. Alberta estimates that invasive mussels alone could cost the province $75 million annually if introduced into the province. In 2015, the Government of Alberta introduced a team of K9s as an innovative tool for prevention of invasive mussels, and their role has since expanded. This workshop will highlight the work of the Conservation K9 unit, and a four-legged member of the team will be on hand to showcase his skills.
