Secret Information Reward Scheme

WPSI runs a Secret Information Reward Scheme to gather poaching and wildlife crime information around Tiger Reserves in Central India in collaboration with the Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh State Governments. The scheme is now active around Tadoba, Bandhavgarh, Melghat, Kanha and Pench Tiger Reserves. 

It has proven to be very successful in obtaining information on poaching activity around these Tiger Reserves. Through this scheme, anyone who has information on any illegal wildlife activity can telephone a 24-hour mobile number and anonymously give the details. If the information results in a successful wildlife enforcement case, they can call again to receive a confidential cash reward which they will be given within seven days.

A cash reward of Rs. 15,000 is given for information leading to the arrest of tiger poachers and the seizure of steel traps used to kill tigers. A reward of Rs. 5,000 or more is given for information leading to the arrest of local poachers who use electrocution traps or poison waterholes to kill leopards and prey species 

The award scheme is constantly publicised through posters and wall paintings, and awareness drives are held to launch the scheme in new areas. WPSI’s Central India staff also conducts a series of micro-workshops in the target areas to train frontline forest staff in anti-poaching techniques and to spread awareness about the scheme.

A large amount of wildlife crime related information is received every year through the Secret Information Reward scheme, and shared with the relevant authorities.
