BirdLife open day

BirdLife Cyprus is organising its first open day on Saturday May 14, and is inviting young and old to learn about bird migration but also about the threats faced by migratory birds.
The open day will run from 11am until 2pm at BirdLife Cyprus’ offices in Strakka, Kato Deftera, Nicosia. May 10 is World Migratory Bird Day.
Cyprus is on one of the main migratory flyways in Europe.
“Migratory birds risk their lives to survive and because birds do not recognise borders, their protection is our shared responsibility,” BirdLife said. The organisation estimates that around two million birds were killed by hunters and poachers last year in Cyprus.
The programme for the open day includes:
• 11:15 – 11:35 Presentation of the work of BirdLife Cyprus and the serious and persistent problem of illegal bird trapping and discussion.
• 11:35 – 12:35 Documentary screening “Leaving is living” by the Hellenic Ornithological Society (BirdLife in Greece), which is the national BirdLife International partner in Greece (Greek dialogue, English subtitles). Duration: 60’
• 11:15 – 12:35 Experiential workshop for children (ages 5+) on the subject of bird migration, with the actress and theatrical game facilitator Elena Pavlidou.
• Drawing activities for young and old. The event is open to the public and admission is free.
Please register for participation in the experiential workshop for children until May 12 on 22455072 or [email protected]
