Hawaii's Nature Police Launches 24-Hour Hotline

Watch out you ruthless filmmakers who would trample on nature and all things holy to get the perfect shot: The state's Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) just launched a toll-free 24-hour enforcement hotline that the public can call to report violations of natural and cultural resources laws (littering, vandalism, desecration, etc.). Callers will be asked to provide as much detailed information as possible.

Here's the #: 643-DLNR (3567)

Enforcement duries will be carried out by DLNR’S Division Of Conservation And Resources Enforcement (DOCARE), or what I like to call the "nature police." DOCARE's 120 officers have full police powers, and enforce all state laws and rules involving state lands, parks, shores, historical sites, forest reserves, aquatic life and wildlife areas, coastal zones, and conservation districts.

So, filmmakers: if your good will didn't stop you from stomping on our precious plants, maybe now your good sense will.
