The Bird Bulletin – Vol. 13

By Gui-Xi Young

The summer is over, the kids are back in school and our Bird Bulletin is back bringing you beak-sized updates from across Europe & Central Asia.

TRIAL & ERROR – right now the battle over Białowieża is being fought in the European Court of Justice (ECJ). As Poland continues to defy the ECJ’s injunction over its illegal logging activities, the European Commission has told the court that the desecration of Europe’s last ancient forest must warrant financial penalties. BirdLife now calls on the Commission to demand fines that are severe enough to show that crime doesn’t pay.

PAINT IT BLACK – Iceland’s environment minister has signed a regulation banning the shooting of Black Guillemots in the country. This milestone was achieved thanks to effective cooperation between BirdLife’s Icelandic partner Fuglavernd, the Icelandic Ecological Society (Vistfræðifélag Íslands) and the Icelandic Shooting Association (Skotvís).

EAT, PREY, LOVE – Help us save Europe’s magnificent vulture species from the threat of diclofenac, the veterinary drug that wiped out 99% of vultures on the Indian subcontinent in the 1990s. Support our BanVetDiclofenac campaign!

Well that’s all for today’s ‘Bird Bulletin’ – tune in next week for more cheeps, chirps and chatter.

Bye bye birdies!
