Greece – Hellenic Ornithological Society (HOS)
Hellenic Ornithological Society (HOS)
The mission of the organisation is to protect IBAs, globally threatened species and priority habitats in Greece; to advocate sustainable development; to provide advice to government authorities; and to promote interest in the conservation of wild birds through public awareness programmes.
