International Wildlife Crimestoppers is a non-profit corporation dedicated to reducing the illegal taking (poaching) of North America's fish and wildlife resources through the exchange of information with anti-poaching organizations at, national, regional and local levels. Members are agencies or organizations whose primary responsibility is the collection and passing on of information relating to violations of laws and regulations regarding the fish, wildlife and habitat in their state or province. Currently, the association is made up of North American states and Canadian provinces, along with a board consisting of environmental, outdoor and enforcement enthusiasts.
As a non-profit corporation, IWC does not receive any state or federal funding and depends solely on financial support from memberships, public and corporate donations, as well as private and individual donations.
"Protecting the natural and cultural resources is an ongoing mission for conservation law enforcement officers and the International Wildlife Crimestoppers association. This cannot be accomplished without your support. Please support the association through a donation. Together we will help end the flagrant violation of game and fish laws and ensure our wildlife is protected"
The purposes for which the Association is organized are exclusively charitable, religious, and educational within the meaning of section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 or the corresponding provision of any future United States Internal Revenue Law.
With poaching trends continuing to rise and the lack of effective and timely information sharing, the International Association of Natural Resources Conservation Association (IANRC) was created. In 1997 anti-poaching coordinators from seven states - Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, New York, Texas, Nebraska and Georgia - attended a summit in Denver, Colorado to establish an international forum where they could meet in an effort to further their respective anti-poaching programs. The IANRC has now become International Wildlife Crimestoppers (IWC).
IWC's goal is to explore possibilities for educating the public that consistently travel across the country to hunt and fish, about the values of their natural resources and their continued protection. Currently, the association is made up of North American states and Canadian provinces, along with a board consisting of environmental, outdoor and enforcement enthusiasts.
IWC is not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States nor are they members of our Association.
