Powerful Whistleblower Laws Can Stop Wildlife Crime
Join the National Whistleblower Center’s Global Wildlife Whistleblower Program. The Program is an international campaign that supports whistleblowers who report wildlife crime. NGOs and community organizations can have a major impact by educating their local communities about available financial rewards for wildlife whistleblowers everywhere.
NGOs and other organizations can also act as whistleblowers and are eligible for monetary rewards under internationally-applicable U.S. wildlife and related laws.
