Guides

BirdLife Malta are currently collaborating with Girl Guiding Malta to produce four brand new nature badges. The badges are designed to promote exploring and protecting the outdoors through hands-on learning.

There is a badge for each section which comes with easily accessible online resources and even volunteer training so you and your section can get the most out of the new resources.

You can also complete parts of the Biodiversity Challenge during a visit to a reserve or arrange a pre-visit to your guide centre!
