Discover Nature Program for August 2018:
Join The Canid Project on Tuesday August 28, 2018 for a presentation on the wild canids of Louisiana.
The Canid Project’s mission is to educate the public on wild canids. Our goal is to document and share the stories of not just wild canids, but also the stories of humans and the wild canids who enter each other's lives in some capacity.
We actively present this creative and educational information through our photography, non-fiction narrative, eco-tourism, conservation photography-based workshops, and community outreach to inspire and educate the public.
With active partners and programs in the USA, Canada, and England we strive to shed light on how these relationships shape our views on the wild canid species and the ramifications, both negative and positive.
As branching features, The Canid Project provides the only species-specific fox rehabilitation program in Louisiana. Through this state-permitted program we rescue, rehabilitate, and release orphaned and injured Red and Gray Foxes. We also offer consultations on humane and ethical deterrence methods of foxes and coyotes, and/or the retrieval of injured or orphaned urban Red and Gray Foxes (and coyote on a case by case basis).
Our current programs:
-Red and Gray Fox Rescue and Rehabilitation
-Conservation Photography Workshops
-Wildlife Photography Mentorship for Teens
-Community Outreach Talks and Presentations
-Periodical: Notes From The Field
-Wild Canid Book Series
