Malta – 06. 05. 2024

Bird protection camp in Malta mission complete.


With the end of the spring hunting season for turtle dove and quail, we have now completed this year's spring mission on the Maltese archipelago. Since the beginning of March, a total of 20 CABS members have been working on Malta and the smaller neighbouring island of Gozo to take action against illegal bird-trapping and later against the shooting of protected migratory species. During the bird protection camp, which lasted more than eight weeks, 37 poachers who had either stalked, trapped or hunted protected species were convicted by the police. The officers confiscated a total of 39 nets and 11 electronic decoys during the operations. Around 300 live birds, including golden and Mornell's plovers, for which no proof of origin was available, were also confiscated.
