The Centre for Environmental Rights  is calling on all partners, concerned citizens and supporters of environmental rights in South Africa to make use of National Government's special 24-hour toll-free hotline to report any concerts about violations of environmental laws.

The Environmental Crimes and Incidents Hotline provides a platform for members of the public to voice their concerns about environmental transgressions. Set up by the Department for Environmental Affairs since 2006, and ,managed by an independent operator, it extends the capability of environmental authorities to detect and tackle non-compliance.

Your call will be answered by trained operators who will issue you with a reference number for your complaint. Any activity that you suspect contravenes an environmental law or regulation can be reported, whether it is about waste dumping, wildlife poaching, water pollution and sanitation services, etc.

Your call ensures that these violations do not go unnoticed and enables Government to measure and act on behalf of everyone's right to an environment not harmful to health or wellbeing.

Your call matters - whether you choose to remain anonymous or not - call the national Environmental Crimes and Incidents Hotline 0800 205 005.
