German Ambassador visited our bird protection camp in Malta

10.04.2024

This morning - the first day of the controversial spring hunting season in Malta - CABS staff and volunteers met with a delegation from the German Embassy Valletta. During a walk along the Dwejra Lines, Ambassador Tanja Beyer got a feel for the work of our 'Bird Guards' and discussed the current situation with regards to migratory bird protection and poaching on the Mediterranean island, including the continued persecution of protected birds of prey, as well as the mass trapping of songbirds in spring. Other topics included the ongoing proceedings against Malta before the European Court of Justice for violation of the EU Birds Directive and the results of our ongoing operations, in which a total of 34 poachers have been convicted since March and more than 300 live birds have been confiscated by the police.
