18,000 working hours for the birds


Without our volunteers, the work of CABS would not be possible. Our helpers from all over Europe search for trapping sites, dismantle traps and nets, rescue birds, collect evidence for criminal proceedings and guard the roosts of migratory birds. The working hours are uncomfortable and exhausting, especially for bird protection missions in the Mediterranean region: at dawn and dusk, the bird poachers have to be convicted at the trapping and hunting sites found during the day. Many poachers have also switched to the night - working hours from 10 pm to 6 am are not uncommon. And in the meantime, pictures and video recordings have to be analysed and reports written. On average, our participating bird conservationists work around 14 hours a day - around 18,000 volunteer hours a year for migratory bird conservation!
