Is there a reward?
Yes, there is. In fact there is now a $50,000 reward for information that leads researchers to the location of one or more Ivory-billed Woodpeckers. There are specific requirements that you can read about at the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission website or you can view the reward poster.
This reward is jointly sponsored by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commision and The Nature Conservancy of Arkansas.
