BirdLife Malta insists that bird protection enforcement should also fall under ERA

BirdLife Malta welcomes the appointment of a Director within the Environment and Resources Authority (ERA) to lead its newly created enforcement branch. The appointment of this new post is positive news which brings hope of improvement in an area which Malta has always lacked in.

BirLife Malta augurs well to retired Lieutenant Colonel Mario Schembri and promises cooperation in his new role leading this directorate. Enforcement in Malta is a necessity due to the huge impacts of human activity on the few remaining natural spots, especially Natura 2000 sites.

BirdLife Malta also takes this opportunity to ask the Government for bird protection enforcement to also fall under ERA’s remit.
