Actions in Cyprus

Cyprus is one of the Committee Against Bird Slaughter's (CABS) most vital operational areas. Each year, millions of migratory birds are caught with limesticks and nets. Apart from warblers, other endangered long distance migrants such as flycatchers, redstarts and reed warblers are particularly affected. Each year, during our bird protection camps we collect thousands of limesticks and hundreds of nets and conduct field investigations to help the authorities prosecute the poachers.  

Bird protection throughout the year

With our actions in spring, autumn and winter, CABS now have teams active in Cyprus throughout the trapping seasons.
