    This category sees images that tell a story about conservation efforts or the struggle of a particular species. Winner - Ewan Heath-Flynn, UK (Gold) 'Bird Assassination' The Mediterranean is an important maritime crossing point for birds using the Afro-Eurasian flight route. For birds to successfully reach their breeding and wintering grounds, stopovers are essential for them to rest and refuel. In the heart of the Mediterranean Sea is Malta. With 170 permanent immigrants recorded here every year, the location is a perfect stopover. However, long-distance migration using the Africa-Eurasia route has declined over the past 30 years, and hunting is a contributing factor. Each year, an estimated 110-36 million migratory birds are illegally hunted or captured in the Mediterranean region. Malta is recognized within the EU as a contributor to this, with the highest density of hunters per square kilometer.
