We don’t often cover raptor persecution issues beyond the UK and Ireland, but the situation in Malta is worthy of an exception.
All this week, Chris Packham and his self-funded team are publishing video blogs about the appalling illegal shooting of birds (including raptors) that are trying to pass through Malta on their northward spring migration.
The videos will be upsetting, undoubtedly, but the situation must be addressed and Chris provides suggestions of how each of us can help.
You will notice some similarities between the situation there and the situation here.
