Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-TURLES-3-9A number of measures aimed at protecting seabirds have come into force.

The Environment and Resources Authority (ERA) said on Thursday the measures follow scientific assessments which have been carried out.

The second assessment of the status of seabirds in Malta, published by ERA in 2020, showed that the status of the three main breeding seabird species in Malta is good.

Current data indicates that the populations of the Mediterranean storm-petrel and the Yelkouan shearwater appear to be stable, with possible increases in the latter, which may be attributable to either an increased monitoring effort or conservation measures, or both. The Scopoli’s shearwater also appears stable, albeit with possible declines.

Such assessment process was also made possible with EU and national funding, including scientific research conducted through various projects.
