Wildlife Alert Reward Program

Report fishing, boating or hunting law violations by calling toll-free 888-404-FWCC (3922); on cell phones, dial *FWC or #FWC depending on service carrier or text TIP@MyFWC.com (standard usage fees may apply); or report violations at MyFWC.com/WildlifeAlert.

Visit our Facebook page at Facebook.com/WildlifeAlert.

The residents of Florida have an opportunity to help protect our state’s fish and wildlife from poaching and wildlife and environmental violations and to help protect each other from boaters who are operating boats under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It’s called “Wildlife Alert.” Wildlife Alert is a reward-based program for apprehending those who violate Florida’s fish and wildlife laws. Through the program, alert residents become the eyes and ears of fish and wildlife law enforcement officers and are rewarded for their efforts.

Callers can report any suspicious activity, supplying information such as the physical descriptions of violators, vehicles, license tag numbers, locations, etc. They should report it as soon as possible, but they should not put themselves in any dangerous situation. To make an anonymous phone call to report fish and wildlife violations, call toll-free 888-404-3922 or visit
MyFWC.com/WildlifeAlert.
