Report wildlife crime

By lending us your eyes and ears, you could make a real difference to the future of hundreds of endangered species.

WWF’s Eyes and Ears initiative asks the public to report anything they have seen or heard that may be linked to illegal wildlife trade.




  • Do look and listen as our eyes and ears, but don’t attempt to investigate anything yourself
  • Do use your common sense and don’t put yourself at risk
  • Do call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you see or hear something suspicious that you want to report urgently (you must be 16 or over).



  • Don't draw attention to your interest
  • Don't take any action yourself
  • Don't arouse suspicion in any way
  • Don't buy anything as evidence. This encourages the trade and you could be prosecuted
  • Don't ask any questions that might arouse criminals' suspicions
