Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS)

CABS was established in 1975, under the name of Komitee gegen den Vogelmord in Germany. From the very beginning we have specialised in the work against bird poaching - a small but important field of activity in the field of environmental protection. Today, we are the only European organisation with this specialisation and we are active in most hot spots of migratory bird hunting in the Mediterranean basin.

Research and lobbying

Not all problems can be tackled with practical work only. Research and lobbying are important to uncover grievances or change laws.Where hunting and bird-catching are permitted, we have the relevant laws and regulations checked in court to see whether they are compatible with nature conservation law.
