Niko, Yackson, Jago, Arrow and Doc are N.E.C.C.A.’s new elite staff members. Born last May in Huelma Spain, they are already undergoing intense training for the detection of poisoned baits at a specialized facility. The five Belgian sheepdogs combine endurance, speed, intelligence and an extraordinary sense of smell and hearing.
Their arrival in Greece is scheduled for spring of 2022, upon which they will get acquainted with their handlers (also N.E.C.C.A. personnel) and commence training before they are deployed for operations in Natura 2000 sites, with the aim of locating poisoned baits and removing them from the field.
