IAR Malta gets observer status in Brussels group
International Animal Rescue Malta is the only environmental group from Malta that gained observer status in Eurogroup for Animal Welfare, the consultative group for the EU. The other group with a similar status is World Animal Conscience (WAC).
In a letter to Max Farrugia, Chairman of IAR Malta, David Wilkins, the Chairman of Eurogroup, stated that IAR Malta had received the unanimous support of the Executive Council for its application for observer status. This will be presented to the Annual General Meeting for formal approval. It is a great honour for IAR Malta to be given this status in Europe. We are delighted that such an authoritative body recognises the work that IAR is doing to help the environment in Malta, particularly in the field of injured birds and wildlife.
