The Spring Festival of Akrotiri may have lasted only two days, but that was enough for a number of people of all ages who joined the festival to unveil the hidden beauty of the Akrotiri peninsula.

The area known for its high environmental and cultural value, hosts the largest natural wetland complex in Cyprus and is recognised for its biodiversity.

During the festival, interactive activities took place across the peninsula, including basketry workshops, educational games, bird ringing demonstrations, bird watching, crafts for families, hiking and moth observation.
Through these activities, participants were given the opportunity to explore the rich natural heritage of Akrotiri and learn how we can protect it, as its conservation is necessary for us all.

The project partners are BirdLife Cyprus (leading role), Terra Cypria, the Cyprus Sovereign Base Areas Administration – Environment Department (SBAA ED) and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.
