Help stop wildlife trafficking
Thanks to the Washington Animal Trafficking Act, items from some endangered species are now illegal to sell in Washington. Bring yours in today to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife booth near the moose statue at our front entrance - no questions asked. This includes products made from elephant (ivory), rhino (horn), tiger, lion, cheetah, leopard, shark, sea turtle and ray.
More about the Act>
Trinkets made from ivory, horn, shark fin or turtle shells are now worth nothing to you. But they're worth everything to the living animals that need them to survive. By removing these products from the market, we reduce demand and keep these magnificent animals alive.
Turn in your trinkets and show the world that you support endangered species.
What will the WDFW do with your surrendered ivory or fins? First, we won't even see them inside Northwest Trek. The agency will either destroy them, or use them for education purposes, inspiring future generations to help protect these wild animals - not kill them.
