Bird trapping has long been banned on the island – the relevant legislation was indeed tightened up on accession to the EU in 2004 – but the poachers are unimpressed and continue to break the law. Some offenders scarcely bother to conceal their trapping sites, not least because large sections of the rural population have little awareness of their wrongdoing. The police and other agencies are not idle; but they do not have enough personnel to effectively combat poaching.

Last year, the race raised nearly $60,000 for a raptor-protection project led by Bird Conservation Georgia. This year’s race will benefit BirdLife Cyprus.

With spring migrations well under way, Saturday saw the start of CABS (commitee against bird slaughter) spring bird protection camps across the Mediterranean. Their fieldwork starts on the southern Italian islands of the Gulf of Naples, continuing in mid March with operations across Brescia, Northern Italy as well as Malta. In April they will also be active on Cyprus and in Calabria. In total around 80 participants from Italy, Germany, Slovenia, United Kingdom, Netherlands and France are expected…
A way to help is NOT to go on holiday there and to spread the word why…There are other and far more beautiful places on the planet to go to holiday too than cyprus..
