The Society for the Protection of Birds and Nature (KUŞKOR), has been active since 1988, and strives to protect birds and their habitats in North Cyprus through education, research, monitoring and lobbying.
The Non-Government Organisation works hard to protect and conserve the breeding and migrant bird populations of North Cyprus at a time when natural habitat is dwindling through human development and the numbers of birds are depleting due to hunting, poisoning, changes in land use and climate change.
KUŞKOR has announced an upcoming Field Trip which will take place on Saturday September 1st. Whether you’re a resident in North Cyprus or a tourist, this fascinating and educational event is sure to be one to remember!
