Today’s episode begins with a loud, violent confrontation between local hunters and the BirdLife Malta camera team.
The hunters clearly do not like the spotlight on their hunting activities, and the police are quick to remove Chris Packham and the team from the area. CASH, the Campaign Against Spring Hunting, has generated more than 44,000 signatures representing 10% of the Maltese voting population, in support of a referendum to ban Spring Hunting.
There is hope for the future, however, and we see large groups of school children learning about and enjoying wildlife from a hide at a wildlife park.
If you haven’t already voted, then we invite you to vote FOR or AGAINST a complete ban on the spring hunting of migrating birds on Malta. Please vote and also leave your comments at the bottom of this page.
