Border Collies Help Reforestation Efforts in Chile

Recommended Posts

Another interesting use for border collies. B)

Some of the captions refer to them as "trained." I do have to wonder just what that means in this context. I guess as long as a dog wants to run and has a good recall, just about any dog large enough to tote the backpack would do. Still, I'm glad to see it's border collies.

I loved this approach to reseeding. I am ready to hike the Western forests that were burned this past year.

Jovi, I'm going to send this to a fire ecologist here, see if I can take Gibbs for a run with a backpack full of seeds. Will let you know how it works out. It would be so very, very cool to do that here.
