Birdlife Malta is requesting answers from MEP candidates about their obligations to the local and global environment and ecosystem.

The Bird conservation NGO has issued 10 questions to the prospective MEP candidates running in the European Parliament elections, concerned with a series of local and international environmental issues.

The manifesto contains questions pertaining to, ‘climate change to ODZ development, from the transport challenges to clean air, from hunting and trapping derogations to the need of better enforcement, from biodiversity loss to unsustainable fisheries and bycatch… we feel it is our responsibility to put the natural environment on the agenda and their obligation to relate, think and reply on their position.’

This forms part of the organisation’s five priority issues which they are encouraging the political parties and their MEP candidates, ‘to consider, promote and endorse,’

Birdlife Malta also promotes its Breakfast event taking place at the Salina Nature Reserve Visitor Centre on May 3rd.

The event is open to all and participation is free, however one needs to register here.
