New operation - CABS starts bird protection camp in Greece
The holiday island of Zakynthos, with its location off the west coast of Greece, is an important stepping stone for migratory birds. Reports about illegal spring hunting on the island have been circulating for quite some time, but concrete information was not available. Recently we started our first operation on Zakynthos and in just the first few days we have directly witnessed widespread and uncontrolled poaching - especially the endangered turtle dove is targeted. How the authorities could have missed such rampant illegal poaching until now is difficult to comprehend.
Our teams are now busy collecting information and evidence in an attempt to persuade police and hunting authorities of the urgent need to intervene.
