ECJ 2018

A good day for birds -
End of birdtrapping in Malta is coming soon!

After a 4-year long infringement procedure the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that the Maltese trapping season for finches is a clear breach of the EU´s Bird´s Directive. “We are glad that the institutions of the EU finally showed their teeth and confirmed that the Maltese government´s plan to legalise finch trapping was in fact illegal”, CABS president Heinz Schwarze said.
