Welcome to The New Guinea Singing Dog Conservation Society. We offer the most comprehensive information about New Guinea Singing Dogs and our Conservation Society’s work.
Conservation through Education
The New Guinea Singing Dog (NGSD) or “Singer” is a wild dog originally found in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. New Guinea Singing Dogs remain in the wild and are residents at numerous zoos in a variety of countries, and are also found in private homes where they can thrive and do well with proper socialization and care.
The New Guinea Singing Dog Conservation Society was established in 2001 as a Section 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization formed for the following purposes:
Promoting health and genetic diversity among captive New Guinea Singing Dogs
Advancing the conservation of wild New Guinea Singing Dogs and their habitat, in cooperation with the New Guinea people
Encouraging scientific study and public education about these primitive dogs
In order to truly understand Singers, you must know something of their native environment. They are what they are today because of thousands of years of natural selection that has adapted them to the conditions in the Highlands of New Guinea, the second largest island in the world.
