Combating Poaching in Oregon
Poaching (or illegal killing) is a serious threat to wildlife conservation and Oregon is no exception. Between 2012-2020, there have been over 110,000 reported cases of poached species across the state. For imperiled species, even a handful of poached individuals could put the species’ recovery at risk.
In order to combat this pervasive poaching problem, the Oregon Wildlife Coalition has created an Anti-Poaching Reward Fund. This reward fund complements the already existing TIP (Turn In Poachers) program in which members of the public are incentivized to report any illegal or suspicious wildlife activity to the Oregon State Police. Specifically, our program expands the list of species eligible for a reward to include a broader list of mammals, birds, and imperiled wildlife species. For more details on the TIP reward program, visit the TIP hotline page
We need your help to stop poaching in Oregon!
