Green Marker Cyprus: stopping poachers in their tracks

Cyprus constitutes one of the most important migratory routes for birds in Europe. The island hosts 385 bird species, 332 of which are migratory.

Friends of the Earth Cyprus has been assessing the impacts of poaching for many years and has launched several public awareness campaigns.
