FKNK - Illegalities will not be tolerated

The Federation for Hunting & Conservation (FKNK) warned its members today that illegalities during the Spring open season, which opens tomorrow, will not be tolerated.

"The FKNK will take drastic disciplinary action, within its power, against any member who may be found in serious breach of the relative regulations, to the point of membership revocation, without which, hunting licence renewal is not permissible," the federation said.

It said it has appointed field marshals who will survey the whole of Malta and Gozo and will report any illegalities to the police. Any FKNK member may also anonymously make such reports on the specially designated police telephone number: 119. This number  may also be used by the public.

During the open season, for the third year in succession, an independent private company commissioned by the government, will be carrying out a scientific study to monitor the migration of the turtle dove and the quail over the Maltese islands. The FKNK is offering its full support, and its members’ participation in this study. The FKNK said  BirdLife Malta has, for the third consecutive year refused support and/or participation.
