Hunt­ing ban.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Hunt­ing has been banned un­til Jan­uary 18, the En­vi­ron­ment Min­istry an­nounced yes­ter­day. The ban was brought into force to pro­tect en­dan­gered species – which have al­ready suf­fered the im­pact of the cold weather this win­ter – from poach­ers amid reports of a spike in il­le­gal hunt­ing around the coun­try. More­over, many mi­gra­tory bird species have taken refuge in wet­lands in south­ern Greece be­cause of freez­ing con­di­tions in the north of the coun­try.
