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 found only in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea.  New Guinea SInging Dogs remain in the wild and have also been residents at numerous zoos in a variety of countries.  NGSDs 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 is a Section 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization formed for the following purposes:

  • To promote health and genetic diversity among captive purebred New Guinea Singing Dogs

  • To advance the conservation of wild New Guinea Singing Dogs and their habitat, in cooperation with the New Guinea people

  • To encourage scientific study and public education about these primitive dogs 

Helping Hand Badge

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.
