Through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with WDFW, we offer standing rewards for those who provide information that leads to a poaching conviction in Washington state under the following circumstances: Up to $7,500 for information helping to convict anyone who has illegally killed a wolf in Washington. Up to $5,000 if a protected grizzly bear, wolverine, lynx, pronghorn, caribou or fisher was killed. Up to $3,000 for egregious violations involving deer, elk, moose or other iconic or threatened wildlife, such as spree killing. We also occasionally offer larger rewards in specific egregious circumstances. Reward funds are provided by our generous members and donors. Rewards will be fulfilled after a conviction is obtained. Those with information on potential poaching should contact the WDFW Law Enforcement division. Other Wildlife Restoration: We support a variety of iconic native wildlife species through our conservation programs in addition to those specifically listed above, under Restoring Wildlife. Generally, our priority wildlife species include gray wolves, grizzly bears in both the North Cascades and Selkirk Mountains, fishers, Canada lynx, mountain caribou, wolverines, marbled murrelets, sharp-tailed grouse, sage grouse, bighorn sheep, elk and mule deer.
