This petition is directed to the Honourable Dr. Anton Refalo as Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Animal Rights for Malta.
Time for Change Malta is extremely concerned with the state of the welfare of animals in Maltese zoos.
While we appreciate that zoos are a complex and multidisciplinary issue, we consider that the legislation regulating the area needs to be amended to create a more structured set of regulations and, in turn, facilitate more effective enforcement.
Along with this petition, we are putting forward several proposals with the goal of improving the conditions of animals in zoos in Malta, improving the protection of the environment from the effects of zoo operations, improving the protection of public health and safety, and streamlining legislation and making enforcement more effective.
