Cyprus winter camp comes to an end
After 78 days of operation our winter bird protection camp on Cyprus has now finished. Since the middle of December our teams have found and dismantled 299 limesticks and 21 nets (in winter 2018/19 there were 824 limesticks and 138 nets). In cooperation with wardens from the Game and Fauna Service 3 bird trappers and 11 hunters were arrested, 77 birds were freed. This means that the decline in bird-trapping in winter continues - our permanent presence is having a clear effect! However, illegal hunting with shotguns, remains a major problem.
