APB/BirdLife Belarus shut down after 24 years of activity

Responding to the decision made by a Belarusian court to close down APB (BirdLife’s Partner in Belarus) on the 18th of April 2022, Patricia Zurita, CEO of BirdLife International says:
“BirdLife International regrets the court’s decision and our thoughts and support are with the APB team. APB is not and never has been a political organization. Its focus has always been to conserve species and habitats. For 24 years it achieved some incredible things for Belarus’s birds and biodiversity as well as for the whole of Europe. We are very sad that APB will close but we believe that conservation must and will continue in Belarus.”
