KDWP Law Enforcement Division Awarded Anti Poaching Grant

The award money goes to the purchase of an anti-poaching trailer

The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks announced on Thursday that its Law Enforcement Division has received a $10,000 grant from International Wildlife Crimestoppers toward the purchase of an educational anti-poaching trailer.

A news release from the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks says, “The “Wall-of-Shame” trailer will be used to highlight past criminal wildlife cases KDWP has investigated and provide educational opportunities to examine actual contraband seized from investigations.”

The release also states, “Through its membership in IWC, KDWP was eligible for the grant which is funded by Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund. Guided by the visionary leadership of Bass Pro founder Johnny Morris, the Outdoor Fund empowers the 200 million annual customers of Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s to support conservation efforts by “rounding up” their purchases.”
