Organisation: SABUKO – Society for Nature Conservation
Location: Batumi, Georgia
SABUKO, a conservation NGO working in Georgia, is looking for motivated people who want to help solving a key conservation problem in the Batumi Bottleneck through understanding the effect of illegal shooting of raptors, and changing the attitudes towards birds of prey in a non-confrontative way.
If you are interested in working with us, it is important that you know you are able to stay neutral and diplomatic when faced with people shooting down birds in front of you. It is crucial not to provoke hunters. Getting angry with them will lead you nowhere and will close the door for further research and constructive dialogue.
