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.
Bird species affected by poaching
Cyprus is not only a focal point of poaching, but also a central stepping stone for migratory birds in the eastern Mediterranean. More than 100 bird species are affected.
Results and Statistics
Our reports show how many traps and nets we have collected in Cyprus during each action and how many poachers have been prosecuted as a result of our field investigations.
