The trapping of song birds in Brescia and Sardinia

This is the website of LIPU-UK - the British section of LIPU, BirdLife in Italy.

Thank you for wanting to learn more about the trapping of wild birds, for the illegal restaurant trade, in a country which has so much to offer in terms of culture, history and beauty.

Please look around the site, spend time here, see that there is good as well as bad and then choose to help us in our struggle to help the wild birds of Italy. You'll see that we don't have salaries to pay so we are efficient, but we are big enough to have raised well over £1 million for the protection and conservation of birds.

Thank you.

But it's not just in the northern valleys that trapping is a problem ... Click Here for Sardinia
