Earlier in the week, Brian Carlton heard from conservation biologist, Dr Dejan Stojanovic, who is working to raise $60,000 to train a puppy all in the name of science.

Zorro, the border collie cross springer spaniel, will be trained to sniff out owl vomit in order to assist researchers in finding out more about the Tasmanian masked owl.


Operation Owl Dog has managed to raise an impressive $42,000+ so far but unless the $60,000 target is achieved by Sunday night, the project will not receive these funds.

Listen as Dr Stojanovic shares a last minute plea for donations with Brian Carlton.
