To report suspected poaching, or serious public land abuse, call the toll-free Report A Poacher line at 1-800-642-3800 or visit alberta.ca/report-poacher. Both the line and webpage can also be used for emergencies involving wildlife.
Poachers are brought to justice because of people like you. If you see anything suspicious, pick up the phone or contact us online. Taking calls 24/7, Report A Poacher lets Albertans alert Fish & Wildlife Officers to suspicious or illegal activity, hopefully leading to investigations and convictions. You can remain anonymous and if your call leads to a charge, you will receive a reward.
Illegal activity includes activities like:
- Hunting at night
- Shooting from a roadway
- Having more than the catch limit
- Trafficking fish or wildlife parts
- Driving a vehicle through the bed or shore of a natural waterbody
For all other complaints or general enquiries, call your local district office. In Alberta, you can also dial 310-0000 toll-free and ask to be directed to your nearest Fish and Wildlife office.
