Committee Against Bird Slaughter - Annual Report 2021
This year, despite the pandemic, CABS conducted a total of 26 bird protection camps with more than 140 participants across seven countries. After evaluating all the outreaches, camps and actions, our teams dismantled and seized a total of 6151 illegal traps, 255 nets and 244 electronic decoys. 268 poachers (and bird traffickers) were prosecuted and over 2300 birds were freed unharmed back into the wild. With the activity report published today on our website, we give an overview of our activities in 2021: The record high number of poacher convictions compared to previous years is due on the one hand to the particularly high "success rate" of our teams in Malta and Cyprus this year, and on the other hand to the expansion of our actions in Spain.
A detailed summary of some of the other highlights of this year can be found in our report here.
