Mr James Crymble

BirdLife Malta, Malta

I am a Project Officer with BirdLife Malta's LIFE Arċipelagu Garnija Project. The project aims to secure the Maltese Islands for Yelkouan Shearwater.

We are working to counter a number of diverse threats facing the breeding shearwaters in Malta, primarily control of invasive non-native rodent species. Other major threats include: light pollution from towns and bunkering vessels; anthropogenic disturbance; persecution; loss of breeding habitat.
