Nimrod Mifsud, BirdLife Malta's newly nominated Nature's Hero, made headlines in the international press in 2014. With Nimrod's assistance, British naturalist and broadcaster Chris Packham was making a documentary on Malta's controversial spring hunting of migrant birds. While Nimrod and the BBC crew were making their way along a public footpath through land claimed for exclusive use by hunters, he was arrested and charged with trespassing, after allegedly being abused and threatened.
