Hunting banned due to cold weather

TAGS: Environment

Hunting has been banned until January 18, the Environment Ministry announced on Wednesday.

The ban was brought into force to protect endangered species – which have already suffered the impact of the cold weather this winter – from poachers amid reports of a spike in illegal hunting around the country.

Moreover, many migratory bird species have taken refuge in wetlands in southern Greece because of freezing conditions in the north of the country.
