Coastal garigue is an important natural habitat in the Maltese Islands. Several flora and fauna are found in this habitat including the national plant of Malta – Maltese Rock-centaury (Widnet il-Baħar), the Maltese Spider Orchid and the Maltese shrew. Endemic species are only found in Malta, thus form part of the world natural heritage. These species need to be protected especially from illegal dumping.

I need to reach the other side; my kids need food. On the other side, I can find something to eat but I need to cross a dangerous road. I am running as fast as I can but suddenly something hit me. Everything is getting darker…my poor children!! Please call Nature Trust Malta Wildlife Rescue Team on 99999505 to rescue my kids. I also want to appeal to all humans out there. Protect my children-place more hedgehog road crossing signs, use fewer pesticides, dump less litter or adopt a hedgehog by sending an email to Adoptahedgehogmalta@gmail.com . With your help my little children can live longer and may finally cross to the other side.

Threatened Outdoors

Why should a walk in the countryside meant to rest one’s mind be more stressful by seeing such an awful view, an eyesore to everybody locals and tourists alike? That, besides being dangerous for children especially with sharp, rusted, jutting metal pieces around. Nadur Local Council and the Ministry for Gozo, please take note! Why haven’t Green wardens been engaged, trained to control and if necessary fine people who vandalise and dump their waste in the countryside. The area in front of Nadur’s old cemetry entails a very lovely landscape but this ‘scene’ simply ruins it. Unfortunately cleanups tend to be futile since waste seems to regather in the same areas by magic. Let’s be more realistic and act to protect the lovely outdoors Gozo is blessed with before the natural habitat of certain local species is destroyed and it is too late to enjoy.

Different photographs showing close up and far away views of Pembroke Garigue Heritage Park. This park provides a very good opportunity for the younger generation to learn more about different flora and fauna of the Maltese islands, including endemic and endangered species. Education for sustainable development should be encouraged amongst all students through programmes such as Ekoskola, Young Reporters of the Environment and Catch the Drop campaign.
