About Wildlife Detectives

They plunder Puget Sound beaches of clams, mussels, oysters — and, most-prized of all, geoduck — to feed an illegal demand for these Northwest delicacies. Elk relentlessly chased down by ATVs for their antlers. Sturgeon killed for caviar. Bald eagles slaughtered for their feathers. Northwest wildlife is falling prey to poachers, but determined wildlife officers are combating illegal hunters.

KCTS 9 and EarthFix investigate the alarming threats to Northwest wildlife, and the wildlife detectives trying to stop criminals from making a killing.
