Conservation Youth Club (CYC) of Gjirokastra

Conservation Youth Club (CYC) of Gjirokastra was founded nearly 5 years ago with the primary objective of protecting the ‘Egyptian Vulture’, an extremely endangered species.

Widely supported by the Association of Ornithologists of Albania, the Club of Young Conservationists Gjirokastër has undertaken a series of activities in the field to protect the ‘Egyptian Vulture’, such as: monitoring the nesting population of the ‘Egyptian Vulture’ in the country; monitoring of the risks that threaten the population of the ‘Egyptian Vulture’ in the nesting territories (poisoning, electroshock and collision with the electricity infrastructure); education and awareness towards the ‘Egyptian Vulture’  population and nature as a whole, etc.

CYC Gjirokastër joined the #shkëndija program during 2022, in order to progress with their initiative. Throughout the program, the young people of the Club, in addition to practical knowledge related to activism, were helped with material basis for marking the ‘Egyptian Vulture’ trail as well as sharing information for education and awareness purposes.
