What is happening in Batumi?
An incredible raptor migration fills the skies above  Batumi every autumn and has become one of the most spectacular concentrations worldwide with over 1 Million raptors and 34 species.

 
Why do we need to take action?
Thousands of birds are getting illegally shot. Globally threatened and endangered species with small populations suffer from the hunting pressure. The monitoring acts as a warning system to detect population trends and impacts in the wide breeding area of Russia and western adjacent countries.

 

Schoolkids listening to raptor ecologyWhat action do we take?
We fully monitor the bird migration and work in and with the local community, organize accommodation with Georgian families, organize educational activities for the young and support cultural exchange. We seek understanding and promote ecological sustainability while we increase the locals annual income through our project.
What will your donation be used for?
It contributes the volunteer accommodation, funds local transports, raptor migration survey, illegal shooting surveys, and materials for environmental education.
