What we have done

We are run a communication and education campaign about the illegal killing of migratory birds in Italy, Greece and Spain through actions at local, national and international level. The campaign was prepared by JWT and implemented by LIPU, HOS and SEO. These are some of the international actions we implemented:

International Workshop — In Greece an international workshop on Bird Crime in the Mediterranean was organized. The workshop raised the awareness of the Law enforcement agencies and the decision makers and facilitated the exchange of best practices in persecuting the illegal bird killers.

High level international conference on Illegal killing — As a closing event an international conference was held in Rome on 21st May 2015 for national decision makers of the countries involved in the project, regional authorities and the main stakeholders such as hunting associations, law enforcement agencies, journalists and the European Commission. Prizes were given to those law enforcement agenzie and agents who have been outstanding in promoting the campaign message.
