Turn in Poachers & Polluters (TIPP Line)


If you see a suspected violation or know of one, have a concern about human wildlife conflict or any other issue you think Conservation Officers should know about, call the TIPP Line above, fill out an online report or contact your local Conservation Officer Services office.

Trained staff will take your call, record the information and immediately pass it on to the nearest available Conservation Officer or Environmental Protection Officer.

The TIPP Line and online reporting form operate 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

Never approach or attempt to apprehend a suspect.

TIPP Reports are Anonymous

A unique identification number will be assigned to you when your call/form is taken. This number will be used to identify you in any future communications.

Identifying a Conservation Officer

Environment Yukon Conservation Officers have "gone green" by switching to a forest green shirt. The new shirt replaces the khaki shirt worn since the 1970s a colour that several other enforcement bodies also use. It will now be easier for the public to identify a CO from a distance by his or her uniform. The distinctive CO vehicle markings will not change.

If the information you provide concerns a resource violation and results in the laying of a charge by a Conservation Officer, you are automatically eligible for a reward. The person taking your call will provide you with the details of the procedure.

The Yukon Fish and Game Association has a Rewards Committee which oversees the handling of the Reward Fund.
