Sasktip takes up the cause for Saskatchewan’s wildlife, fisheries, forestry, and environmental resources.

Sasktip is a registered charity which maintains a reward fund to assist in the apprehension and prosecution of those who violate resource and environmental laws. It was formed to help Conservation Officers in Saskatchewan convict poachers of all types.

Sasktip works closely with Saskatchewan Conservation Officers, but is NOT a government entity. The organization relies on donations and grants to successfully operate and provide incentive for reporting poachers.

The 24-hour Saskatchewan Turn In Poachers Line is monitored by the Ministry of Environment. Sasktip relays any information it receives to the proper authorities, but strongly advises you contact the TIP line directly to ensure your information is handled in a timely manner. Sasktip does not provide a 24-hour reporting service.

SASKTIP

Sasktip is comprised of volunteers from across the province of Saskatchewan. These dedicated volunteers are active members in their communities and stand up for Saskatchewan’s natural resources in their daily lives.
