箱龜保育犬

約 20 年前,美國北卡羅來納州一名男子的帕金獵犬喜歡把箱龜帶回作禮物給他,他發現這特殊技能有助於科學研究,因箱龜常躲藏於草叢中難以被人類發現。他其後開始訓練更多帕金獵犬來嗅出箱龜,並到美國不同的地方參與龜類保育工作。

around 20 years ago, a man in North Carolina found his Boykin spaniels liked to bring him box turtles as gifts during their hike, and he discovered their special skills could help scientific researches because box turtles are hard to encounter as they are usually hidden in tall grass. He then started to train more spaniels to sniff out box turtles, and travel around the States to track box turtles with different conservationists.
