Anti-poaching campaign goes to Legislature

            The anti-poaching campaign stemming from a budget note OHA had attached as part of the ODFW budget was not included in the Governor’s Recommended Budget that was submitted to the 2019 Legislature. So, an anti-poaching campaign legislative concept will be submitted to be introduced in the 2019 session. The concept involves addressing poaching by focusing on two areas: increasing detection of poaching incidents and enhancing current efforts to deter poaching. This multi-year strategy involves multiple agencies and partners in a coordinated effort to: 

• Increase public awareness of the impact of poaching 

• Increase reporting of poaching incidents 

• Increase law enforcement detection of poaching 

• Ensure consistent prosecution and punishment of poaching
