Wildlife Rehabilitation Ireland is organising this fundraiser for PAW Ireland
Wildlife crime is on the rise. Innocent animals are being terrorised, wounded and slaughtered in their own habitats. Habitats that should be safe and protected.
We need your help
PAW Ireland needs your help to tackle wildlife crime. We need your continued support to maintain the PAW Wildlife Crime Reporting App, which costs €3,000 per year to run, maintain and update.
This App will help minimise cruelty, torture, maiming and killing of innocent wildlife. Think of Irish badgers, hares and deer. Otters, swans and foxes. Help us to help them.
** THE PAW APP IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD **
If you witness suspicious activity, report it on the app or you can visit our web application HERE directly from your browser.
This groundbreaking PAW Wildlife Crime Reporting app can help you do that by allowing users to:
● Easily find the correct contact details to report suspicious activity on the whole island of Ireland
● Easily record and email a suspected wildlife crime report on the spot or later when back at home
● Access the Irish Wildlife Crime website
● Find contact details for who to call if there is an injured wild animal at the scene
● Find contact details for Northern Ireland organisations that handle wildlife crime
The Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime in Ireland - PAW Ireland - is a group of conservationists, land managers, welfare groups and statutory bodies. All have grouped together to become PAW Ireland, to tackle crimes against wildlife in Ireland.
There is legislation in place to protect against wildlife crime. But much goes unreported and the prosecutions that do take place are few.
Indeed, since the Animal Health and Welfare Act 2013 was enacted, only 100 or so animal welfare cases were prosecuted before the Irish courts, and all that time, just three were jailed for crimes against animals.
Wildlife crime needs to stop. Wild animals need our protection. Wildlife crime is any act that contravenes current legislation governing the protection of wild animals and plants. It can involve anything from poisoning an eagle to damaging the environment on which wildlife depend. If you witness suspicious activity, report it.
