Spring Report 2024

CABS-Newsletter 2/2024

In the first half of 2024, we carried out missions in eastern Spain, northern and southern Italy, Sardinia, Malta, the Greek island of Zakynthos, Cyprus and in Lebanon, with over 70 volunteers from all corners of Europe. As a result of our fieldwork, the police have convicted 122 poachers and seized 249 traps, 153 nets, 19 hunting weapons, over 1200 rounds of ammunition and 53 decoys and rescued and released more than 400 live birds!

The Dodo - Widespread coverage for our work in Cyprus!

CABS-Newsletter 2/2024

The well-known animal welfare media company The Dodo from New York City, has teamed up with our dedicated volunteer Zoe Keeping from the UK, to put together a short video highlighting CABS anti-poaching operations in Cyprus. The result is well worth watching and shows the most beautiful aspect of our work - rescuing and releasing migratory birds and other wildlife from the illegal traps and nets. The video has now gained more than well over 3 million views across Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and Facebook and helped to raise the profile of our work.

We hope you enjoy the video – take a look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCHh4uSb32c
