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.
