BirdWING (Birdwatching in Northern Greece) has been set up to raise awareness of birds in Greece and to raise money for the conservation and restoration of bird habitat in the region. Birdwing has supporters from all over the world.
Since its formation, Birdwing has funded projects including building rafts for Common Terns at several locations, writing the first site-guide for Birdwatching in Greece to help attract eco-tourists to the region, producing and publishing a children’s bird book in Greek and constructing a platform to encourage Dalmatian Pelicans to breed again at the Evros Delta.
Many of the sites of Northern Greece are under threat. Continued land reclamation, drainage, illegal building, over-grazing and a serious lack of political will towards the environment all continue to have damaging effects. In addition, at certain sites, like the Evros Delta, hunting pressure is intense. We need to bring pressure to bear for their protection now!
The aims of Birdwing are:
- to raise awareness of issues affecting birds in Northern Greece
- to raise money for direct habitat improvement to help birds whose habitats are at risk
- to build a membership for a collective voice on conservation issues
