Eleonora’s Falcon – Life in the Balance (2021) 


Through the perspective of Mavrommatis, a migratory bird of prey that visits the Akrotiri Peninsula every summer to breed, the documentary 'Eleonora's Falcon - Life in the Balance' presents the unique natural wealth of the area and the challenges it faces.  Wetlands, coastal scrub, dunes, farmland, impressive coastal cliffs… the Akrotiri Peninsula hosts a unique mosaic of habitats as well as the largest wetland complex on the island.



It is one of the most important areas for biodiversity on the island, providing refuge to rare species of plants and wildlife, and is a top destination for any nature lover. The future of the peninsula, its species and its habitats are however in immediate danger. Increasing pressure for development in the area, disturbance, increased visitor numbers and the effects of climate change are threatening this sensitive area with degradation and loss of habitat. Can we save it?
