Podcast about illegal poisoing in Hungary

The most recent bird poisoning cases in Hungary draw attention to how important is to detect, sanction and prevent these crimes. In the seventh episode of WWF Hungary’s Lételem podcast László Patkó, Large Carnivores Programme Manager of WWF Hungary together with Márton Árvay, Project Manager of BirdLife Hungary, talk about illegal poisoning of raptors and the methods and techniques to detect and prevent them. The conversation (in Hungarian) covers, among other topics:

  • who is usually behind these crimes
  • the extent to which the placement of poisoned baits can wreak havoc on an entire ecosystem
  •  how the special sniffer dog unit works

As a conclusion, László and Márton finish the conversation by talking about the projects they are currently working on, what they have achieved so far and the next challenges to face.
