Project Poacher is the official app for the National Wildlife Crime Unit initiative which aims to tackle poaching offences across the UK. and is now available across three platforms which is a good start and its great to see a Windows Phone app included here too. This app would be quite useful for people to report cruelty to animals and wildlife and would be great to see something similar here in Ireland too.
Project Poacher is an initiative of the England and Wales Poaching Priority Delivery Group (PPDG), which includes representatives of the National Wildlife Crime Unit (NWCU), other specialist law enforcers and representatives from the Angling Trust, British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), The British Deer Society, Country Land and Business Association (CLA), Countryside Alliance, The Deer Initiative, The Environment Agency, National Farmers Union, The National Gamekeepers’ Organisation and Natural Resources Wales.
The app has three simple functions
Report poaching and wildlife crime quickly and easily
