Spring bird protection camp in Cyprus.

28.03.2024

One of our bird protection camps is currently underway in Cyprus as well. Migratory birds are in a hurry to reach their breeding grounds in continental Europe; and although in recent years we have noted a decline in the incidents of illegal bird trapping and hunting, Cyprus remains a blackhole for birds traversing the eastern flyway back into Europe. With that said, CABS teams of conservationists from Slovenia, Italy, Germany, the UK and Cyprus are now active on the ground to investigate and report active trapping sites with limesticks or nets, as well as incidents of illegal hunting to the relevant authorities. Fines for wildlife crimes are significantly higher in spring (outside any official hunting season) and we therefore hope this alongside our presence will act as deterrent.
