I live on the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia and was involved in the local Forestry Department's fight to save our endemic parrot (Amazona versicolor) when its numbers dropped to an unsustainable level. Now, in spite of continued loss of habitat and nesting sites by hurricanes and human encroachment their population has increased and it is expanding its territory. It saddens me that Malta with its history of destroying large numbers of birds on their migratory flights from one country to another, still has a problem with the trapping and killing of endangered wildlife.
