Ways to get involved

Help reduce demand for endangered and threatened wildlife and wildlife products obtained illegally by becoming an informed consumer.  When in doubt, ask questions about the source of a product or skip purchasing all together.  You can learn more and/or consider supporting the work of those that help combat wildlife trafficking.  

Simple acts that support the environment and biodiversity help as well.  Protection of species and ecosystems generate respect for wildlife and benefit our health long term.  


Volunteer and seasonal USFWS workers

The Repository has a small group of dedicated volunteers that assist the wildlife property program in receiving, loaning, inventorying confiscated wildlife property items.  There are educational outreach opportunities available throughout the years to create awareness on the effects of wildlife trade and trafficking.  For more information about volunteering at the Repository please contact us at nwpr@fws.gov
