Anti-poaching operations in Greece now complete.


This spring, CABS teams were active in Greece for the first time. Our focus was the holiday island of Zakynthos off the west coast of the Peloponnese, where there are numerous reports of illegal spring hunting of returning migratory birds. The result of the action is sobering: In April and May, hundreds of hunters shoot turtle doves and other protected species here, although hunting is also prohibited in Greece in spring. Three offenders were convicted by us together with the police. 

The next operation on Zakynthos is planned for April 2024. Information on our new operation area can be found here.
