It is a sad sight which is becoming increasingly common; as dead domestic animals, particularly cats are a frequent occurrence. It is a route up a blind alley should we humans (particularly the locals) continue to exude this behavior, as apart from embellishing Malta with a highly negative reputation, it is very obviously having a deterioration and detrimental effect on the cat population .Though found in large numbers, the cat population here in Malta is a bit of inevitable nuisance from the perspective of space; however beneficially biodiverse through environmental perception since they aid in continuing the biological cycles; which every member of the interdependent manual workers here in Malta are in need of. Should we give a bit of thought to the issue, we realize that it would be more feasible to give up a cat for homing rather than killing it, or rather than running over it voluntarily.

Look at this beautiful creature! It is the Maltese Fresh Water Crab, found only on the Maltese Islands. I captured this rare sight on an excursion to Bahrija valley where the fresh water course flows. It was a quiet afternoon and had to wait considerable time to spot this crab. But I was lucky. It is hardly visible when many people are around. It hates disturbance. Besides, it is so well camouflaged that you hardly see it in the water. The number of these fresh water crabs is very low so you have to quite patient to see it. It needs a continuous supply of fresh water throughout the year. This has become rather difficult on our islands because many people are extracting water from the aquifers. The pesticides used by farmers are also polluting the water. So, let us do our best to preserve these wonderful crabs.

Ghalfejn ikissru kull fejn jaraw naqra hdura? Possibbli kien hemm ghalfejn jeqirdu din il-bicca hamrija ukoll? Hasra li dejjem jeqirdu s-sigar u l-hamrija…. Dnub li minflok din il-hamrija issa gejjin aktar postijiet ghall-parking, u inqas sigar. Mhux ahjar nevitaw din il-qerda u naghmlu aktar sigar?

In-natura madwar l-iskola mhux dejjem qiegħdin nieħdu ħsiebha bl-aħjar mod. F’dan ir-ritratt naraw fjura li waqgħet mal-art. Bebbuxu li kien għaddej tela’ fuq din il-fjura u ħa nagħsa hemmhekk. Importanti li meta ngħaddu minn passaġġi fin-natura ma ngħaffġux pjanti,fjuri u annimali. Ritratt sempliċi ta’ xena li min jaf kemm il-darba tiġi quddiem għajnejna u li aħna ma napprezzawhiex għax mitlufin mal-ġirja tal-ħajja ta’ kuljum. Naraw ukoll li hemm bżonn noqogħdu attenti biex ma nitilfux aktar ħamrija. Fejn ħadna dan ir-ritratt hu maħkum ta’ spiss minn riħ qawwi u xita kif ukoll ħafna nies jgħaddu minn hemm biex iqassru. Dan kollu qed jikkawża erożjoni tal-ħamrija.
