This road sign is not to be found in some remote rural area of Malta. It occupies a prominent position in the main square next to the Rotunda Church in Mosta, signaling to drivers that they are forbidden to turn right. The photo captures the piteous state of this road sign. Besides being horribly mangled, a good part of the road sign has gone rusty to the extent that not only has the paint peeled off but the metal has also correded. Moreover, someone has decided to use this sign as a miniature billboard, placing an advertisement on it. This area is visited by many Maltese and tourists alike. Isn't it time to replace this sign with a new one?

For many countries, a drop of water may be meaningless.  However, for arid and semi-arid countries that experience hot weather, like many places in Africa and to a lesser extent Malta, a drop of water can make the difference between life and death for many life forms.  Many plants and small animals, some of them which may be very rare and near extinction manage to survive with very low amounts of water.  It is thus very important not to waste and contaminate this precious resource.  All of us should make an effort to save on water use!

Il-ġmiel ta’ pajjiżna ma jonqos qatt speċjalment f’dawk il-postijiet l-inqas affetwati mill-bnedmin. F’dan ir-ritratt naraw parti mill-irdumijiet li jinstabu madwar il-kosta Maltija. Anke jekk dan l-ambjent jidher pjuttost għeri, fih insibu pjanti rari bħal Widnet il-Baħar li ftit li xejn narawhom f’ambjenti oħra. Anke għasafar bħal Merill ibejjet f’dan l-ambjent. Ta’ spiss naraw turisti, kif ukoll Maltin jagħmlu xi passiġġata qrib dawn il-postijiet. Għalhekk għandna nibzgħu għall-irdumijiet billi ma nħammguhomx jew jingħataw permessi għal barrieri fil-qrib.

filed under Photos

Filfla Nature Reserve . This photo was taken while visiting the Wied iz-Zurrieq area on a small Maltese traditional fishing boat (luzzu). It shows the island of Filfla which forms part of the Maltese archipelago. Up until 1971, Filfla served as ground for military practices. Later on, in 1988, Filfla was declared a nature reserve and access to it was strictly forbidden to preserve the flora and fauna found on the island. Some of the species found on this small island are endemic such as the Filfla wall lizard and the Maltese door-snail. Filfla is certainly a unique site for future generations to enjoy. This photograph , together with other photos, is going to be published in a tourist guide booklet entitled A Journey to the South of Malta. This booklet forms part of the school’s Entrepreneurship through Education Scheme Project 2012.

This is a video which describes the beauty present at Chadwick lakes, a shallow valley at Rabat, Malta. On the other hand, it illustrates the bad state of this area which makes it less accessible for people to visit. Due to this, there is a decreasing number of tourists and Maltese citizens that are visiting the area. Link for the video on you tube is : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7BwQpjBt8M
