Be wary of poachers and other suspicious activity in Alberta

- Alberta Environmen­t

Alberta Environmen­t says for hunters and citizens alike should watch for suspicious activity

You can play a role in protecting fish and wildlife resources and our natural surroundin­gs by observing the activity around you.

When you report an incident:

• you could be eligible for a reward for providing informatio­n on violations of Alberta's fish or wildlife laws

• you don't have to provide your personal informatio­n.

• any personal informatio­n you provide is kept confidenti­al.

You can remain anonymous. However, investigat­ions are often more successful if you provide your contact informatio­n so that an officer can follow up with you for more details.

After you make a report, our Fish and Wildlife officers will then investigat­e it.

The Alberta Conservati­on Associatio­n funds the reward payments.
