Bellden Environmental Services combines extensive natural resource management experience with the superior ability and speed of a trained detection dogs to find target scents in the natural and built environment. The dogs efforts are complimented with the use of today’s advanced technology in field data collection and image capture. Created in 2017 we currently deploy 2 dogs. One dog trained primarily on koala scat, fox and feral cat and the other on leaking treated drinking water. Our consultancy relies on over 20 years experience in natural resource management covering areas such as invasive species management at landscape scale, sustainable agriculture and empowering the community to improve the remnant natural environment on their land.
