Press Release 20th September 2014

Din l-Art Helwa commends the government’s decision to close the hunting season following repeated instances of illegal hunting of protected birds.

These persistent illegalities confirm that it is a mistake to relax hunting regulations, such as the recent removal of the 3 pm hunting curfew which was intended to protect migrating birds of prey during this period. The easing up of environmental regulations has only served to encourage further abuse.
