Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS)

The Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS) (“Komitee gegen den Vogelmord e.V” in German), is a German NGO, which is committed to fighting and halting the slaughter of migratory birds in Southern Europe, with a focus on Malta, Cyprus, Italy, and France. CABS’ work involves removing traps, monitoring hunters, and supporting police efforts to bring poachers to justice. CABS lobbies parliaments on these issues and conducts awareness raising initiatives with the general public about bird hunting and trapping in Europe. Minara supported the extension of their mission to Cyprus where 30 volunteers removed 3500 glue traps, 140 nets and 100 electronic devises to lure birds. Furthermore, combined law enforcement efforts with local police led to the arrest of 20 bird poachers.
