It is recommended where you suspect a Wildlife Crime has been committed, that you contact your local Garda station or National Parks & Wild Life Service office, taking note of all relevant details such as location, date, time, vehicle registration and other details - but never approach!

* Terms & Conditions - Report a Wildlife Crime is an initiative in response to the increasing levels of crimes against our wildlife. Our intention is not to interfere but support those responsible for policing our wildlife and their welfare.

We will only accept completed and signed questionnaires, and on the basis that a suspected Wildlife Crime has taken place. The Wild Deer Association of Ireland of Ireland, will forward completed questionnaires to the relevant authorities. Having done so we will not enter into any further discussion, correspondence or representation on the complainant's behalf or their representatives. We do not accept liability or make any judgement, on the content of questionnaires received. If you suspect a wildlife crime has taken place we advise you follow the recommended course of action by contacting the relevant authorities.
