A building of no use

Every time I go walking at Marsascala, I see this abandoned building formerly the Jerma hotel. This huge building is very dangerous. If someone gets in he could fall because there are no windows. It is dirty so people could get infections. Dogs, cats and rats may reproduce inside. This site may be a meeting point for thieves and drug dealers. Outside the building there is no sign to warn children that the area is out of bounds. It is an eye sore near the coast so because of this less tourists are staying in Marsascala, for this resort is not so attractive anymore. Something about this abandoned building must be done. The owners can restore it into a hotel again. It could be converted into a school or a home for old people. Anything is better than the state it is in now!

This piece of land was just a piece of car park. Before, when there was the Second World War, this land was used for target shooting. Several years after World War 2, in 2012, the Government transformed this abandoned land into a beautiful environmental and eco-friendly garden. There is even a pond! If we learn to take care of it, maybe we will have more parks like this, full of trees & flowers which provide natural habitats for a lot of species. If we learn to take care of nature, nature will show us all its beauty, so let’s learn now to take care of our things!

Wied Blandun Community Garden

Wied Blandun Community Garden – My school, Mater Boni Consilii School, works a lot to make the environment a better place. One of the projects that the EkoSkola Committee in collaboration with HSBC did was the Community Garden in Wied Blandun, Paola about 2 years ago. Each class planted flowers or herbs to make this garden look better. In this project, the EkoSkola committee did not only make Wied Blandun look nicer but also gave the opportunity to all students to observe nature. Unfortunately, some plants have been stolen and vandalism occurred. It is useless to sit back and not speaking up! Everyone has to do something about these problems. What are YOU going to do about it?!?!

This photo shows the shoreline at Bahar ic-Caghaq with rough sea hitting the coast on a typical winter day. In the background, Maghtab is taking shape after being closed down in recent years. Soon the biker in the photo can enjoy the view from the opposite side of the picture when it becomes a family park.

Valleys wiped off

Malta is a landmass full of stone buildings with only small patches of trees and fields. Many beautiful green valleys have been completely wiped off. Developers believe that they have a right to destroy the local natural environment to gain more profits. This is happening in spite of the fact that many flats are still unoccupied. Buildings have been built in many valleys such as that of Kalkara. Local plants and animal species survive in these valleys thanks to the availability of water. Some of these species are becoming rare because their natural habitats are decreasing rapidly. An example is the very rare perennial Willow-leaved Knotgrass. If we do not stop this unnecessary development children in the future would not have open spaces where to play and enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature.
