In Siġġiewi as I was in my mum’s car I was lucky to see hail for the first time and experience the fun children have playing in the backyard throwing snow In other countries. I was inspired to take this picture because of the contrast the glowing white hail has with the frozen red rose outside a private garden. The water droplets and the hail on the leaves made a beautiful photo, with good colour contrast. We had so much fun taking photos because of the few hail that the temperature in Malta produces and this time it was the only time I saw snow like hail. The white colour from the hail really bright up the picture and especially on flowers .

Dangerous Litter

In selected areas in the Maltese countryside, one is likely to come across dangerous litter consisting mainly of used cartridges. These cartridges have been used to kill migratory birds. Apart from this wrong doing, these cartridges are full of lead. When it rains, the lead slowly enters the aquifer and affect the quality of water that we drink. Lead from used cartridges in fields may also mix up with water stored in reservoirs. Thus farmers end up watering crops with dangerous polluted water. All this is greatly affecting negatively our health. It would be much better if hunting is stopped in our small islands for the benefit of our health and also for the birds.

Keep Malta Clean!

In this photo, I wanted to show our beautiful Mediterranean sea which thousands of tourists travel a lot of kilometers each year just to swim in our beautiful sea. Although the sea in Ramla bay is quite clean it’s surrounding is not at all the same, it is actually the opposite, full of litter. I felt humiliated when I took this photo as just two passes away from the plastic bottles which were thrown on the ground, there where 4 bring in sites which were empty. It is such a pity seeing that the Maltese people don’t take notice of the services provided by the Maltese government to help reduce litter until 2018, where Malta will be the European Capital City. I would love it if teenagers of my age gather up and clean Malta’s environment!

Keep our environment clean

I took this photo as I would like to show the few high hills found in Malta. Although this scenery is scarce in Malta, we still do not take care of our environment. I tried to show the beautiful scenes on Malta, and on the bottom left of the picture one can find scraped cars which ruin the environment. With this picture, I would like to start an awareness of keeping our environment clean and beautiful, as in 2018 Valletta is going to be the European Capital. If we could all do our bit, and throw away litter where it should be thrown away, we would clear the Maltese environment instantly and make our island a better looking one.

Water Water everywhere and not a Drop to Drink

submitted by Gozo College Boys Secondary : EkoSkola Committee  for 11-14

Water is a valuable resource, especially in our country where we don’t have many options where to get fresh water from. While we acknowledge that a lot has been done to clean our valleys and facilitate the water flow, there is still a lot to be done to maintain them regularly. This valley in Gozo has been left to fill up with debris with the consequence that if it rains nearby properties will get flooded. This has already happened in the past. Moreover, if measures were taken for this water to be used, farmers would find good use for it.
