Tackling illegal Bird Trapping | Committee Against Bird Slaughter

The Committee Against bird Slaughter, or CABS, was founded in Berlin in 1975 by a small group of birders concerned by the scale of illegal bird trapping in and around the Mediterranean. The group's strategy has developed over the years but has always focussed on being on the ground during peak migration periods and intervening wherever possible to save birds. Charlie Moores talked with two members of CABS, Andrea Rutigliano (pictured above) and Craig Redmond, at the Lush Summit in February 2017 about the organisation and about the terrible situation on the popular tourist island of Cyprus where hundreds of thousands of birds are being illegally trapped every year.
