Protection of migrant birds on Malta - you too can help!Protection of migrant birds on Malta - you too can help!

Excessive poaching on Malta presents a severe threat to our migrating breeding bird species. For several years now the Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS) has been committed to better bird protection on the Mediterranean island. During our international bird protection camps we monitor and guard important roosts around the clock. Together with the environmental police unit (ALE) we uncover numerous cases of wildlife crime every year and ensure that the offenders are taken to court. With our Maltese partner we rehabilitate birds with shotgun injuries and explain the consequences of poaching in schools and public lectures. The first successes, such as a ban on spring hunting and more effective deployment of the ALE, have been achieved. But there is still a lot to do.

You can help us to make the migration routes of our birds a little safer by, for example …

• Taking part in our bird protection camps (more here • by protesting to the government in Valletta and the European Commission • by making a donation • or applying for sponsor membership here

Our outgoings for administration are below 10 %. You can therefore be sure that your donation is used where it is need most – for the direct and effective protection of our migrant birds. In autumn 2002 the German consumer magazine “Ökotest” (Ecology Test) investigated us in depth and awarded us a “Very Good” for our use of donations!
