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. 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 U.S. states and Canadian provinces with an Executive Board consisting of environmental, outdoor and enforcement enthusiasts.
- Educating the public on what poaching is, what to look for and how report an incident.
- The establishment of a grant program to provide current members up to $2,000 for “Wall of Shame” display trailer equipment/upgrades. These trailers help to educate the public about poaching activity.
