Blue Rock ThrushJune 10, 2019 1:21 pm
The Blue Rock Thrush (Merill in Maltese), being the national bird of Malta, represents our environmental education work, through which we strive to connect children, youths and adults with nature. We work to generate understanding and respect for the environment, and to inspire change in people’s behaviour towards sustainable lifestyles. Taking this bird “under your wing” helps us to reach out and connect more people with nature.
Peregrine FalconJune 10, 2019 1:19 pmThe Peregrine Falcon (Bies in Maltese) represents our efforts to protect and rehabilitate wild birds that are illegally targeted, exhausted from migration, or otherwise injured. Through our ongoing efforts we manage to rehabilitate and release injured birds back in the wild. Taking this bird “under your wing” helps us to better monitor bird migration and illegalities across the Maltese Islands.

The Scopoli’s Shearwater (Ċiefa in Maltese) represents our long and ongoing research on seabirds that started in the 1950s. Through our research we managed to collect data on the breeding populations, their behaviour, as well as creating protected areas around Malta. Taking this bird “under your wing” helps us to better understand these secretive birds and tackle their threats across the Maltese Islands.
