How to send us confidential information

We collect and evaluate confidential information and tips regarding wildlife and forest crimes and transform them into actionable items.
Highly experienced and responsible professionals, ex-law enforcement officers and experts evaluate documents and tips provided to us. Each information is evaluated and validated in a very scrupulous way. In order to assess the information and decide what to do, EAL uses sophisticated intelligence and analysis methodology and a vast network of contacts.
We also put a lot of effort into protecting the people who choose to send us information, not only by providing the right tools to communicate with us but also by managing and using the information in the correct way.
You have a few options to send us information securely (encrypted) and anonymously:


Managed entirely by EAL, WildLeaks is the world’s first Wildlife and Forest Crime whistleblowing initiative. It’s by far the simplest way to send us information and all kind of files, securely and anonymously. 
We have implemented a very secure online platform built on the Tor technology in order to allow the sources to stay anonymous and to submit ‘sensitive’ information in a very secure way, always encrypted, in respect to data transmission and management.

You have a couple of good free options:
You can then send us an email to:


Mailvelope_WebMailvelope (OpenPGP Encryption for webmail)
It’s plugin available for both Chrome and Firefox. How does it work?
PGP works by offering end-to-end encryption for your emails so only you and your intended recipient can open them. Both parties have two keys – a public key and a private one.
You share the public key with other people so they can use it to scramble their messages into gibberish and send it to you. When you receive the scrambled message, you use your private key to unscramble the message.
Remember that OpenPGP does not encrypt the subject line of emails, only the text in the body of the mail.
Here a simple tutorial on how to install and use Mailvelope


Threema logoThreema
It’s a versatile app for your smartphone that encrypts all your communications end-to-end including messages, group chats, files and even status messages.
Each Threema user receives a random Threema ID for identification. A phone number or email address is NOT required to use Threema. This unique feature allows you to use Threema completely anonymously.
After you have installed the app, in order to connect to us anonymously you just have to enter our Threema ID: TRMMBK5W 
Threema is available for download in the main online app stores and in the Threema Shop
