Talk To Us
Do You Have Information For Us, But Are Nervous About Talking?
Do you have information about an environmental violation? Are you getting new directives that contradict accepted practices? Are you being told to keep public information from the press or from the public? Are new directives making you uncomfortable? Are you being asked to do something unethical in order to hide environmental wrongdoing? We want to hear from you.
The easiest way to contact us is by phone (413-230-7321), by mail (29 Highland Ave, Pittsfield, MA, 01201), or by email ([email protected]). However, you may want a little more privacy than these channels provide. Here are some other ideas.
Need a little more privacy?
You can send your information by mail from a public mail box, omitting any return address. Only we can legally read mail sent to us (unless there is a court order.)
You can also contact us through the same encrypted email channel we use. Our secure email address is [email protected] Proton mail is an email service that provides end-to-end encryption in a secure channel. You can read a little bit about them here. For truly secure email, you will need to send your email from your own proton mail account. As long as you send your email to our protonmail address from your protonmail address, only we or someone who knows your password can read your message. Even the people at Protonmail can’t read it. Proton mail accounts are free, and no personal information is required to open your account.
If possible, we will need to know your identity so we can verify and authenticate the information you provide to us. Your identity will only be shared with BEAT staff who absolutely need to know it.
We will do everything we can to protect your identity, but if you feel you must remain completely anonymous, we will ask you to provide us with sources or contacts who can corroborate the information you send us.
Thank you for helping us to protect the environment for wildlife.
