CABS Annual Report 2022 - now online
CABS Annual Report 2022 - 320 poachers convicted and over 2,500 birds rescued: This year we have conducted a total of 31 bird protection camps with around 180 activists from all over Europe, in seven different countries around the Mediterranean and caught 320 poachers - a new record! Last year, there were 268. In total, together with the relevant authorities we dismantled 1,039 bird traps, 3,433 limesticks, 534 nets and 236 electro-acoustic decoy callers. Over 2,500 birds were rescued from traps or from illegal captivity by our Bird Guards. The vast majority have already been released back into the wild. We would like to thank all our dedicated volunteers who give up their free time to protect our migratory birds often in difficult and challenging circumstances, and of course all our supporters, members and friends.
