This was also the location for the pictures below. I raised 200 dollars for BLC by using the USB port on my keyboard and recording Christmas songs. I asked my family back in America to purchase them for 10 dollars, but most people gave me 20. Bird Life Cyprus uses this money to help monitor bird populations and to help protect nature. For example, Victor was hired by the Ministry of the Environment in Cyprus to conduct a survey of birds in an area where developers wanted to build a golf course. Because of the work Victor did with counting the birds in the area, he helped convince the government not to allow the golf course to be built. He said it was stupid to build a golf course there because there were so many birds and it was such a green natural space.

Stay tuned for my next post about my first and second days of the Roller Count!
