KUŞKOR has always recognized the importance and power of education and awareness raising.

Educational Talks and Field Trips

Two talks and field trips were given for primary school children at the English School of Kyrenia (ESK) and Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) in December.

At ESK five nest boxes for Little Owl, Common Kestrel, Cyprus Wheatear and Great Tit were erected around the school. The children were given a talk on birds and their habitats and were taken on a tour of the school grounds where they learned about the species living in and around the school grounds and were shown the locations of the five nest boxes to be monitored.

EMU students studying Tourism were given a talk on Ecotourism and its role in Cyprus and later took an organised bus to Kukla Wetlands. There were great views of species such as Peregrine Falcon, Kentish Plover, Shellduck and Ruddy Shellduck among hundreds of other wildfowl. We hope that the event provided an introduction to the potential for putting Cyprus’s nature to economic benefit through sustainable tourism.

Poster Campaign Against Illegal Hunting

KUŞKOR produced and distributed >100 A2 size posters encouraging the Turkish Cypriot public to report and respond to illegal hunting such as the use of illegal methods, take of non-hunt-listed species. The posters are on display in coffee shops, petrol stations and other public places.

We would like to thank to the English School of Kyrenia (ESK) and Eastern Mediterranean University Faculty of Tourism for creating these opportunities for us to conduct awareness rising seminars for future generations.

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?
