The Committee Against Bird Slaughter – CABS (Komitee gegen den Vogelmord e.V.) is an action and operational society. By this we mean that we have a small administration and executive board, without subordinate elements, capable of rapid reaction whenever and wherever required. The route from concept to final decision and implementation is often very short so that when wildlife is acutely endangered we can act rapidly. We have achieved a great deal since our foundation in 1975 through the implementation of this concept.
We intervene in particular where bird trappers, hunters or animal traders commit offences against current nature protection legislation in Europe. We are always concerned to harmonise glosely our activities with the responsible police, forest or customs authorities. In addition, through initiatives at parliamentary level, we attempt to achieve improvements in the legal guidelines for wildlife, nature and species protection. We distant ourselves fundamentally from militant actions or measures that do not comply with the prevailing legislation in the country of operations.
