CABS - Bird Protection Camp Timetable - 2021

Together with our partner associations in ItalySpainFranceMalta and Cyprus; and in Serbia and Lebanon, CABS will conduct numerous campaigns and operations to protect the migratory flyways as best we can in 2021. The activities are almost exclusively financed by donations.

Please note that some of these dates may be subject to short-term change in relation to unforeseen circumstances. In addition, we won't reveal all the locations and exact dates - Italian and Maltese poachers also have internet access and of course browse our pages - hi! We apologise for any inaccuracy in the information.

If you are interested in participating in our bird protection camps, you should bring some basic requirements with you. You can find out selection criteria here.
