Honey buzzards shot down in northern Lebanon.


Last October, a CABS team was active during the peak migration of birds of prey in the Danniyeh district of northern Lebanon. While documenting the extent of illegal night hunting, our team was also able to detect the hunting of protected honey buzzards. However, after shooting two birds of prey, the poachers fled the scene, which was too remote in the mountains to get police support.  In the areas where we have been operating twice a year since 2017, the situation has already improved.
