Oil tanks do a lot of harm to the ecosystem becuase when they rust, this ends up in the soil and can be very harmful to living things that eat it. Barb wire is also very dangerous. All these things should be removed from the fields and countryside and apart from removing danger, eyesores will also be removed as they are very ugly.

The current domestic waste collection system is different than before; where it used to be collected on a daily basis, since it is currently being collected three days weekly. Albeit, there is a larger produce of rubbish to be collected. Due to this, people have blatantly felt the need to discard their waste so as not to leave it degenerating in their own private homes. Therefore; they dispose of their domestic waste in nature’s homes; that is; the surrounding environment, which houses a lot of creatures. Also, if instead of the burden of dumping this along the promenade on the way to Delimara; they could have done a better job and disposed of it accordingly; the people responsible would have done themselves and nature a gratifying favour.

Mdina – a picturesque photo

Malta – an island with a great and unique history. Within this island on can find amazing cities and citadels, like Mdina! And then, great rubbish in hidden areas! This photo shows a contrast between the beauty that man can create, the beauty that nature can create, and the ugliness that humanity can create. Humanity has lived along side nature for quite some time and has created some of the world’s wonders over time. One can ask ‘how can the same creature which created the marvellous citadel Mdina, could create this miniature mountain of rubbish?’ Some might say that in order to create such a wonderful citadel, hosting a variety of culture and such unique architecture, colateral damage must be made, such as the production of waste (this applies to everything, our homes, other cities and so on).

It is a big hassle to carry all your rubbish in your vehicle and go to throw it away in a field. You can just ring the local council and they can take your rubbish and dispose of it themselves. Building debris shouldn’t be thrown away in the fields neither.

Water’s Impact on Life

This image shows a micro environment within a valley watercourse in Chadwick lakes. The irony is that not far from were this image was taken, eutrophicated areas could be found. This image shows just a fragment of what there actually is in the zone. Freshwater all over the world is becoming contaminated and its purity is becoming lost. In the Maltese Islands this is occurring more than ever especially due to the fact that the islands already have a scarce amount of fresh water. The contamination of ground water is leading to the destruction of many ecological zones along with the species which live within them. If nothing is done about this, not even a macro image like this one would be able to be taken.
