A wrapper hidden in the grass in the garden. The photo shows a yogurt cup and a wrapper hidden in the middle of the green wild plants. Another example of rubbish disposed badly. Rubbish thrown badly in the fields can cause a lot of hazard to the wild flora and fauna.

This devastating sight was seen in Mosta. As visible in this picture, the ever-growing littering problem is also taking place where one is least supposed to throw garbage bags: under a “Tarmix Żibel Hawn” sign. It is strongly evident that the conditions stated on this sign are not being enforced, hence the locals’ careless attitude. Apart from being an eyesore, this also gives a bad impression to the many tourists which visit this historical city.

This sight has become a common one in the Maltese Islands. This native plant, known as ‘Prickly Pear’ in English or ‘Bajtar tax-Xewk’ in Maltese, has many things to offer. One important factor is its delicious fruit which also contains vitamin C, beneficial to our health. However, instead of appreciating this, we Maltese decide to bury it under a pile of rubbish. This prevents water from going to its roots, causing this species to start dying. Disposing of bulky boxes and apparatus in skips offered by the local council would definitely be a good start.

Why are there protection and awareness campaigns if we don’t start from the simplest things, such as banning any development in areas where these species are found?
