Results of our spring bird protection camp in Lebanon.


Our spring anti-poaching campaign in the Cedar State is also now complete. This year, for the first time, our teams documented the appalling scale of illegal stork shooting in northern Lebanon. In our experience, thousands of white storks are likely to be killed there for 'fun' during their migration home. In addition to the shootings, actions against bird trapping have led to the conviction of several bird trappers by the police and security forces. More than 650 limesticks, 37 nets and over 110 songbirds were confiscated or freed from traps during these operations. In total, 18 poachers were convicted as a direct result of our field investigations.
