Champions of the Flyway is a major new international bird race that is being staged in Eilat, Israel – home of one of the world’s most desirable birding destinations and famous migration spectacles.

Dutch Knights is one of several international bird racing teams attempting to find, identify and log as many species as possible as they go head to head with other crack teams in an intense 24 hour contest to win the coveted title ‘Champions of the Flyway’.

While the racing will be light-hearted, our goal is serious – to raise conservation funding that will help the BirdLife International Partnership tackle the illegal killing of birds in Cyprus.

A unneccessary meal in Cyprus… a plate full of small songbirds which could hunt and eat insects somewhere and protecting our food…

Song Bird slaughter for restaurants

The reason for all these bird masacres in Cyprus are the people who go into restaurants and who eat these birds as without them, no one would gain a profit.

A quote comes to mind here:

“Not everyone is in a position to help other animals, but everyone is in a position not to harm them.”

So by ‘not’ eating birds, any person can help a lot.

People travelling to Cyprus and finding restaurants where birds are being served (just look what’s on the plates around) should also leave that restaurant and tell the manager or waiter why. Or just not eat there any longer and telling that to the staff before leaving the restaurant.

Take a picture of that restaurant from the outside and post it on facebook or/and twitter.Send it to the CABS team http://m.komitee.de/node/31 and ask them to make a list of the restaurants which serve (endangered) songbirds. This list can be published then on websites of birders.

As Andrea points out in the video if we keep on doing what we are doing because we have always done it that way, and we don’t look at the bigger picture what consequences our actions have, we will destroy the whole planet in 5-10 years.

Never forget that birds are essential for life on earth as they are insect and rodent controller’s, pollinators and seed dispersers. No human technology can plant the amount and kind of plants birds plant in the way they do per year all over the planet.

No human technogy can pollinate what they pollinate per year all over the planet.

And no human technology, other predator or pesticide can control the rodent and insect populations like they do.

We must do whatever we can to stop slauthering them and hunting them (for fun.).

Times have changed and by having more and more people living on this planet who need money to survive and by killing more and more birds with wind turbines, glass, fireworks, pesticides, habitat loss, unnecessary predators we keep as pets like cats and pollution of air, water and soil we are losing birds in dramatic numbers.

Here is another link to read:

It is estimated that illegal trapping has increased by over 50%. The numbers of poachers have increased since the banking crisis earlier this year. Desperate for cash, more people have turned to this lucrative business, since a dozen birds can be sold for as much as 80 euros. Read more:

Bird slaughter in Cyprus

Cyprus Bird Trapping – Hoopoe. Over 150 different species are effected each year, 78 of these are members of endangered species. Hunting is considered a pass-time, adventure or sport and hunters are ready to shoot at anything that moves. We have to respect the animals rights to live in this world.But moreover we must leave the birds alone as they are essential for life on earth.Birds regulate insect and rodent population and act as pollinators and seed distributors. ..Without birds pesticides will overtake and kill off on plants and animals what’s left (just look at parts in Asia where certain areas look like landscapes on the moon after over use of insecticides   ..After there is nothing left it will be GMO food only – leading humans into extinction.

Help to stop the Bird Slaughter

Help to STOP the bird slaughter!

Please make sure that the city or town you visit does not catch birds to serve in restaurants…Malta and Cyprus are complete places to avoid as boycott is one way to make pressure on governments to stop this.These countries do not rely on to eat song birds or raptor birds or any other endangered bird species. It’s a delicatesse to be served nothing more….But our plant growth will continue to diminish rapidly without birds as they act as pollinators and plant distributors and help even to grow forests.Plus they regulate insects and rodents.
