Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP)

The Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) hotline should be used to report wildlife-human interactions where public safety may be at risk.

The RAPP program is a toll free tip line and online service that also allows you to report known or suspected violations of fisheries, wildlife, or environmental protection laws anonymously and without risk of confronting the offender.

Available 24/7, RAPP is simple, safe and effective.

You can also use the online RAPP form to report known or suspected violations of fisheries, wildlife, or environmental protection laws (except salmon-related violations).
