Partnership For Action Against Wildlife Crime (PAW) Northern Ireland

PAW consists of a number of organisations that work in partnership to reduce wildlife crime by raising awareness and promoting effective enforcement.
PAW aims to raise awareness of wildlife crime, establish a Northern Ireland network of contact points to provide advice, information and expertise, and collect wildlife information. The group also liaises with other relevant organisations throughout Ireland including the National Parks and Wildlife Service, An Garda Síochána and the Irish Raptor Study Group.
The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) is an active member in the Partnership for Action against Wildlife Crime in Northern Ireland (PAWNI).

You can download the following leaflets from the Police Service of Northern Ireland's website, in the Partnership For Action Against Wildlife Crime section
