Anti-poison dogs, like Ioli and Kouki here, do a fantastic and invaluable job detecting poisoned-baits in wild places in Greece. Their work prevents many deaths of endangered birds and animals in the hills and mountains, such as vultures, wolves and jackals. It is a dangerous job however, and keeping them fit and healthy is expensive.

This is why we are again appealing for funds to help cover vet's bills, training, transport and food costs for these dogs.

Birdwing's first appeal [birdwing.eu/home/Birdwingappeal] in 2015 raised over €6000 and the funds were given to and managed by the Greek Birdlife partner (Hellenic Ornithological Society) and the Return of the Neophron project

We would like this valuable work to continue and so are launching a new campaign to raise funds.

Please help us by making a donation and sharing our appeal to your friends.

Together we can ensure that these highly-trained dogs can continue to protect the special places in Greece and the many important species that call it their home.

Your donation will: 

  • help to protect breeding pairs of endangered Egyptian Vultures – of which only 5 breeding pairs now exist in Greece!
  • reduce the number of deaths of birds and wild animals, including jackals, wolves and bears 
  • stop the contamination of natural places, including reducing the chances of poisoning of pets and other domestic animals 
  • increase the chances of poisoned carcasses and baits being disposed of before killing wildlife
  • keep Ioli and Kouki and their handlers fit and well

However small, your donation will help!
