What We Do
WILDLIFE PHOTO MENTORSHIP PROGRAMS FOR TEENS
The Canid Project provides nature and wildlife photography mentorships and workshops to select 13-18 year olds who show promising talent and motivation. Scholarships and full grants will be available through this program, allowing those who have not been able to participate in photography classes due to family income restrictions to take full advantage of our program.
Through this mentorship program we hope to provide teens the tools and skills needed to go further in their journey with nature and wildlife photography. Through a mentorship relationship students are paired with a professional photographer who will help them to realize their goals in photography by way of a project. Each student will leave the program with a body of work and a plan for further action. We provide student cameras and accessories for the duration of the program (and hope to provide take home DSLRs as well-which we are currently working on). See more: HERE
TALKS AND MULTIMEDIA PRESENTATIONS
The Canid Project offers dynamic multimedia presentations on the canid species. Because we are comprised of published and award-winning wildlife photographers who have worked extensively in the field with wild canids, you can count on our presentations to be full of beautiful images and information to inspire and educate.

FOX RESCUE AND DETERRENT SERVICES
The Canid Project provides the only species-specific fox rehabilitation program in Louisiana. Through state-permitted program we rescue, rehabilitate, and release orphaned and injured Red and Gray Foxes. We also are here to answer your questions on these native wild canids.
We are available to speak or meet with you regarding humane and ethical deterrence methods, and/or the retrieval of injured or orphaned urban Gray Fox, Red Fox, (and coyote on a case by case basis).
For more information on these services see: Fox Rescue and Deterrence
CONSERVATION PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS
Our aim with The Canid Project workshops is to provide experiences that will not just focus on photography, but also on how you can use your photography for conservation and education. We also focus strongly on the ethics of wildlife photography, ethics of urban wildlife and wildlife photography, and the proper way to wildlife.Each workshop is led by carefully selected ethical wildlife photographers. We strive to work with conservation-based organizations and projects that provide unique and intimate information throughout our workshops by way of professional researchers and biologists.
PERIODICAL: NOTE FROM THE FIELD
The Canid Project is working on Issue 1 of its new periodical: Notes From The Field. We are looking for stories and photo essays that are focused on wild canids. They can cover wild canids' current issues, conservation, rehabilitation, medical care, research, or personal stories of the human-canid relationship.
