Protecting resources and people on our refuges is the fundamental responsibility of refuge officers. The mission of the Refuge Law Enforcement Program is to support the administration of the National Wildlife Refuge System through the management and protection of natural, historic and cultural resources, property, and people on lands and waters of our national wildlife refuges.

General contact information to report injured wildlife or wildlife crimes on the refuge:

Help Us Stop Illegal Hunting, Littering and Dumping on Refuge Property!


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has established a "Turn In Poachers" (TIPs) line to help visitors and other members of the public report violations occurring on National Wildlife Refuges and other Fish and Wildlife Service-managed lands.

You can call 1-844-NWR-TIPS (697-8477) or email 24 hours a day.  You'll be asked for the type of incident as well as the date, place (refuge name or parish/state) and approximate time of the incident.  You may leave your name and contact information, which will aid law enforcement in the response and investigation, or you may remain anonymous.  Any contact information will be used for official purposes only.

Thanks for your help in preserving America's natural treasures.
