Rhode Island Joins National Anti-Poaching Effort

Ocean State Governor Lincoln Chafee recently signed legislation enabling Rhode Island to become an Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact member.

Following Vermont and New Hampshire’s lead, Rhode Island became another New England territory to join the Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact—an anti-poaching measure that helps prevent perpetrators who have had their hunting licenses revoked from hunting in other pact states. The IWV has proven to be a nationwide movement, which now numbers more than 40 state members. “[The Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact] will ensure that we join the rest of the country in using this important collaborative tool to protect wildlife and support the work of environmental police officers to prevent poaching,” said Rhode Island Representative Patricia Serpa. According to The Humane Society of the United States, legislation that will make Massachusetts an IWV member is currently pending.
