Investigating wild bird crime

Despite legal protection, offences against wild birds continue and every year the RSPB receives more than 500 reports of wild bird crime.

The RSPB works alongside other groups and organisations in order to investigate crimes and hopefully bring the offenders to justice. Here we highlight our role and the main law enforcement organisations.
