BirdLife Malta is a society for the protection of birds and natural habitats in Malta. The organisation monitors activity that threatens wild birds, such as illegal hunting and trapping and urban development in conservation areas on the Maltese islands.
This year BirdLife Malta celebrates the 50th anniversary of its campaigning, research and conservation work. Founded in January 1962 it is the oldest environmental organisation in Malta.
Malta lies on one of three routes used by birds on their biannual migration between Europe and Africa. There are over 12,000 licensed hunters on the Maltese islands and many will illegally shoot protected birds as there is a large bounty on the rare species.
To help Birdlife Malta stop this tragic waste, Andrew Morgan is giving this lecture, entitled Bird Migration and the Campaign to stop
, to raise funds and awareness for the campaign which he has been supporting since 2008.
The lecture takes place at 7.30pm on Wednesday 26th June and doors are open from 7.00pm. The lecture is FREE but a donation of £3 is encouraged to cover costs.
Everyone is welcome and there is no need to book.
