Things to do Whats On BirdLife Field Meetings 2018 - November 2018

BirdLife Field Meetings 2018 – November 2018

BirdLife Cyprus is a registered 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 organises field meetings (the anticipation is at one’s own risk) which require light to moderate exercise. Please contact the field trip leader for more information on difficulty, distances and terrain of a particular field trip. A flask of coffee and sandwiches are a must!
