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.

CABS is a registered association and works as an action group. Find out who we are, what motivates us and what we do.
Bird protection camps
Bird camps are a central part of our work. We search for bird traps and monitor the resting areas of migratory birds.
Public relations is the be-all and end-all of our operations. With each report about a prosecuted bird catcher, five others throw the shotgun into the grain.
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.

History of CABS
When in the mid-1970s the extent of migratory bird hunting in Italy became known, a small group founded the Committee Against Bird Slaughter in Berlin.
