BirdLife Cyprus is always seeking more volunteers for its long-term monitoring programmes. The Common Birds Monitoring Scheme (CBMS) requires two mornings (or more if you like) per year during the breeding season, between March and June, walking a 1km transect near your home.
The Atlas of the Breeding Birds of Cyprus requires visiting particular sites and recording birds there, also during the breeding season. The Waterbird Counts require counts at one or more selected wetland sites in at least five key months per year, January, March, May, September and November.
These projects require good birdwatching skills and a few hours field work per month, or even per year. We have a small but dedicated core of volunteers who already contribute to this work. If you would like to join them, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
If you are interested in becoming part of our team of monitoring volunteers please contact BirdLife Cyprus' Monitoring and Research Coordinator Christina Ieronymidou on +357 22 455 072 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Important Bird Areas (IBAs) in Cyprus are sites recognized by BirdLife International according to internationally agreed scientific criteria for their importance for birds. The IBA Caretakers network plays an active role in the protection of those important sites for biodiversity, through monitoring the threats, the birds that live there and taking action for their protection. By becoming an IBA Caretaker you are able to channel your concern in a dynamic, constructive and empowering way. BirdLife Cyprus provides its IBA Caretakers the necessary materials, essential information and training in nature conservation issues, bird identification, protected area management issues as well as public awareness, in order to become watchdogs of their local IBA.
If you are interested in becoming part of the IBA Caretakers Network and become a steward of an IBA please complete the relevant form and send it to our Natura 2000 Officer at email@example.com
