What Makes Dog Owners Unique? Part 2

               Executive Summary          Final Report

Project Abstract

The New Zealand Department of Conservation seeks to lessen the threat of domestic dogs to endangered coastal wildlife through awareness and intervention. Through behavioral observation, surveys, a Pet Expo, and a social media campaign, we hoped to offer the Department of Conservation new and effective methods of intervention. Through group-specific social media posts, we sought to create a more educated culture of dog owners that protect the threatened species while exercising their dogs in shared environments.
