A boarder collie and Australian cattle dog mix named Bear is leading a pack of dogs trained to find koalas in areas threatened by bushfires in Queensland, Australia, the Guardian reports.

“In places such as Queensland and New South Wales, where populations are already declining, every koala counts,” said Detection Dogs for Conservation founder Romane Cristescu.
