On September 30th 2016, KUŞKOR’s Damla Beton and Robin Snape manned a stall and set up mist nets at Büyük Han in the old city of central Nicosia, as part of the EU Civic Space’s “Open Door Festival”. Information and practical demonstrations were given to hundreds of Cypriot college students, who passed through the event in groups, on the study of ornithology for conservation, climate change and the problem of illegal trapping on Cyprus.

On October 21st 2016, Damla Beton gave a presentation on biodiversity and conservation to pupils of Nicosia TMK (grammar school).

On November 14th, 15 pupils from TED College in Nicosia attended a ringing demonstration at a wetland bordering their school complex, organized by KUSKOR Bird Ringing Scheme. They learned about wetland habitats and biodiversity, ornithology and watched the processing of stunning kingfisher and bluethroat. The students were impressed with the wildlife which was living literally in the back-yard of their school.

Bird Quotes

In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.

Robert Lynd

Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?
