Travel Guide to birdwatching sites in Greece
This guide, designed to be useful for birdwatchers, as well as bird photographers and naturalists, contains all the information needed to see some of the most important birds of Greece. It includes 33 of the most interesting birdwatching sites, covering all aspects of the exceptional habitat diversity found in the country; from alpine grasslands to river deltas and from maquis scrub to dense pristine woodland. Priority has been given to sites that hold populations of Mediterranean or rare and endangered species. The sites have been grouped in seven different regions, depending on their geographical location.

Unprecedented declarations have publicly come forth from the highest level officials of the Hunting Confederation of Greece, aiming to protest against the Greek Ministry for Environment, Enegry and Climate Change (MEECC) for the production of the radio and television spot produced within the framework of a European LIFE project for the conservation of one of the most threatened birds in Europe, the Lesser White fronted Goose (LWfG). The Confederation is requesting the withdrawal of the TV spot, an action in complete contrast to the so called "concrete interest" of the Confederation in the protection of rare birds in Greece.
