Malta Bird Protection Camp News

01/05/2015

Via CABS Malta: Our spring bird protection camp across Malta and Gozo has come to an end. Over the past two weeks, 28 participants from several European countries have come together to safeguard major roost sites and monitor the migration over the Maltese archipelago. Following the spring hunting referendum, which was tipped in favour, stricter enforcement has ensued and we have worked closely with the authorities and Maltese NGOs to record any illegalities taking place. The accumulation of offences resulted the season being closed 3 days early. Other than a handful of shots in the past few days, the birds have been able to pass to their breeding grounds mostly undisturbed.
