Environment Crime

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              The B-C Salmon Farmers Association is partnering with Crime Stoppers to encourage the public to report of crimes affecting the environment. The association says the selling of animal parts or species at risk, illegal overfishing, and fishing or hunting out of season threaten the province’s marine ecosystem. There are also concerns of night hunting or shooting from roadways, dumping waste on Crown land, illegally removing sand, gravel or wood from public lands, and starting fires in areas that are restrict or require permits. The association says these types of harms to wildlife and the environment can result in billions of dollars in damages, and anyone suspecting illegal activity should report tips to Crime Stoppers.
