Conservation Projects

One of the most important highlights for the FKNK, is to promote conservation.


Turtle Dove Captive Breeding Project

The main objective of the Project has organised a pool of locals who captive-breed turtle doves on a relatively large scale, who then sell the birds’ stock offspring to the FKNK for eventual release into the wild.


The species is known to reproduce at a steady rate in captivity and large numbers in offspring can thus be obtained. This Project will also serve as a means to perform ex-situ conservation of these birds by releasing captive bred specimen into the wild.

Barn Owl Reintroduction Project

The FKNK barn owl re-introduction project is aimed at re-establishing a sustainable breeding population of barn owls in suitable habitats in Malta and Gozo, through the release of captive bred specimens into the wild.
