Who we are

BirdLife Cyprus is a registered non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) that works to conserve wild birds, their habitats and wider biodiversity in Cyprus, through research, monitoring, lobbying and conservation and awareness-raising actions.

BirdLife Cyprus is currently the most active conservation organization in Cyprus, running campaigns against illegal bird trapping and poaching and for the designation and protection of Important Bird Areas as Special Protection Areas, as well as campaigns in the area of agriculture, education and awareness-raising.

Our Vision

An island with healthy ecosystems, rich in biodiversity, where people actively safeguard nature for a sustainable future.

Our Mission

Protecting the wild birds of Cyprus, their habitats, and wider biodiversity, through monitoring, conservation and education actions, and by developing people’s appreciation of nature.

BirdLife International

We are the official partner of BirdLife International in Cyprus. BirdLife International is a unique global partnership of national conservation organisations present in 121 countries/territories, and is the world leader in bird conservation. The BirdLife Partnership works locally to deliver long-term conservation for the benefit of nature and people.


Our Strategy

Recognising the severity of biodiversity loss, the EU has adopted a Biodiversity Strategy with targets for 2020, which aims to halt the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services by 2020 and to restore them in so far as feasible, while also stepping up the EU's contribution to averting global biodiversity loss.

BirdLife has been an active supporter of the implementation of the EU Strategy for Biodiversity, and BirdLife Cyprus is committed to do its part in order to reach the above target.
