Raptor migration towards Lebanon.


Millions of birds of prey are currently migrating south across the Mediterranean. On their way to their wintering grounds, the birds will soon reach the most dangerous part of their journey - Lebanon. Here, honey buzzards are the most persecuted bird of prey during migration, with an estimated tens of thousands of birds falling victim to poachers every year. 

The majority are ruthlessly shot from the sky simply for "fun". CABS is sending an international team in the coming days to work with local bird conservationists to document illegal shootings and bring poachers to justice with the authorities.
