What is happening in Batumi?An incredible bird migration takes place covering the entire sky and has become recognized as one of the most spectacular concentrations worldwide.
Why do we need to take action?Thousands of birds are getting illegaly shot. Globally threatened and endangered species with small populations suffer from these hunting pressures.
What action do we take?We monitor the full migration of these birds with 45 volunteering persons for 2 months every autumn.
We work in and with the local community, provide ecotourism, hundreds of guesthouse visitors to poor villagers to increase their income. We organize educational activities for young people and support the cultural exchange.
We seek their understanding, we hope they will decide to refuse the shootings, to go for higher income through conservation instead of killing.
