During autumn, Malta holds a five-month hunting season with 40 species allowed to be legally hunted.

Whilst it is difficult for BirdLife Malta to monitor such a lengthy season, efforts are focused on a period of time that covers the peak raptor migration. All birds of prey are protected, yet many become victims of illegal hunting. Our Raptor Camp teams spend many hours in the countryside, keeping a look out for protected species migrating over and working to ensure that they leave the Islands safely.

BirdLife Malta is looking for volunteers to help out with our countryside monitoring activities during this year’s Raptor Camp between September and October.

Volunteers should be:

  • Enthusiastic about supporting BirdLife Malta’s work
  • Able to work as part of a team
  • Willing to work long days (early morning starts, late day finishes)
  • Birding ID skills are important but not essential

Accommodation is self-catered and spaces are limited so please contact us before booking anything. Costs are to be covered by volunteers, including flights and accommodation. Costs for accommodation are inclusive of food.
