Anti-poaching camps in Calabria 2018
From Giovanni Albarella,
Anti-poaching – Calabria 2018
Once again, this year we shall have the Anti-poaching Camp on the Calabrian side of the Messina Strait, the fieldwork will run from 21 April to 12 May and will comprise three “shifts” – (a) 21 – 28 April, (b) 28 April – 5 May) and (c) 5 may – 12 May.
The activity consists of supervising the migration sites and at the same time observing and counting the birds as they pass. In the event of any poaching, we will notify Carabinieri Forest Guards with whom I have already been in contact.
As for the logistics, we will stay in a house in Reggio Calabria, volunteers need not bring anything as bed linen, towels etc are already there.As for food, packed lunches will be taken in the field and dinner will be cooked at the base. Board and lodging will be at the expenses of LIPU. For the volunteers an insurance policy will also be taken out.
A rental car will be used for mobility.
Anyone wishing to have more information can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
