BirdLife Cyprus has been running projects to improve the conservation status of selected bird species and for the protection of sites in Cyprus. Projects are a key part of our work as they enable us to implement targeted conservation measures and involve key stakeholders in these efforts.

Conservation projects provide the necessary funding to competent authorities and organizations like us to protect biodiversity, wildlife, protected sites or endangered species.

From the smallest Natura 2000 site in Cyprus to the iconic Griffon Vulture, BirdLife Cyprus is involved in groundbreaking projects in collaboration with competent authorities, local communities and key stakeholders with the aim to safeguard sites and species.
