Like all other non-governmental organisations, BirdLife Malta is governed by a statute which can be downloaded here. The statute stipulates the parameters for the election of members in its council. These members abide by the statute in making sure the organisation operates in good governance and accountability.

Here is a list of the Presidents who led BirdLife Malta’s Council throughout the years since its foundation in 1962. Further down (with pictures) is the list of officials and members of the present Council.
