Bird Life Malta have launched this years Spring Watch Camp to help put a stop to illegal killing and persecution of birds and raptors in particular. Every year thousands of birds including many different species of raptors fly over Malta on there annual migration to there breeding grounds. The Maltese hunters sadly are known to come out in force and shoot anything that flies above them although many of these birds are protected species in Malta.
Recently the Maltese Government were taken to court for flaunting EU directives against illegal hunting and were forced to ban hunting. The idea of the camp is to act as a deterrent and gather evidence of any illegal activities taking place.
