Important note: As part of the Darwin Plus project for the restoration of Akrotiri marsh management works are planned to take place during October 2015. BirdLife Cyprus, as a lead partner of the project is responsible for the implementation and supervision of works. This is the first phase of works which include some initial works mainly for the water management of the site.

The completion of the first phase of works will open the way for designing a second phase of works for habitat modification and water management that will probably take place in autumn 2016.
