    Default Spring Watch Malta 2008......

    What is Spring Watch Malta about?

    Spring Watch Malta is a conservation camp which forms an integral part of BirdLife Malta’s fight against illegal spring hunting. This camp is being organised during the peak spring migration period in Malta and thus the period with the highest expected hunting intensity.

    When will the camp be held?

    April 12 to April 29, 2008

    Why is Spring Watch Malta Important?

    This year, there is a strong possibility that spring hunting (which is illegal throughout the rest of the European Union) will be banned for the very first time in Malta.

    If this is the case, then it is vital that BirdLife Malta maintains a strong presence in the countryside to make sure that hunters respect the law, while at the same time recording data on migratory species.

    However, if Malta goes against the European Commission and once again breaks European law by allowing spring hunting, then volunteers will be needed to demonstrate the impact of this hunting season by recording the extent of hunting in spring, while at the same time making sure that hunters do not target protected species.
