BirdLife Malta is the oldest environmental organisation in Malta. What started as a small ornithological society for the study and the protection of birds and their habitats in 1962 has today grown to be the largest eNGO in the Maltese Islands. Today we manage 4 nature reserves, have succeeded in our efforts to limit illegal hunting in Malta, run an annual nationwide school education programme, and manage several EU LIFE-funded scientific studies about Malta’s seabirds. Thanks to us the first 8 marine Special Protection Areas (SPAs) for Malta were recently announced. Here you can find out how it all started, what we do today, who we are, how you can become part of the team and all the information you need for contacting us. You can also watch a video production which illustrates our history and the work we do. The video is available in English or in Maltese.
