Can you guess how many Natura 2000 sites there are in Cyprus?
A whopping 63 Natura 2000 sites! These include both marine and terrestrial sites, with a total area of 1,789 km2. But the key question here is, how many of these are actually properly managed and protected? Hardly any, is the answer…
In many ways, 2019 was a challenging year for nature in Cyprus, but despite that, or because of it (!), we have a lot to be proud of, having worked tirelessly to safeguard birds and their habitats. As the year comes to an end, we take a look back at some of the things that we achieved in 2019.
BirdLife Cyprus, the Game and Fauna Service, Terra Cypria-The Cyprus Conservation Foundation and the Vulture Conservation Foundation have joined forces to provide a lifeline for the threatened Griffon Vulture through ‘LIFE with Vultures’, a new four-year project aiming to prevent the extinction of the species in Cyprus.
