Rare species of fish and grasses thrive on the few saline marshlands that are found on the Maltese Islands. Steps have been taken to protect these areas. But, in reality, from what are these saline marshes being protected? Certainly not from pollution! One saline marshland located in Marsascala, locally known as Il-Magħluq is littered with various objects mostly plastics and beer cans. Although some people are annoyed by this mess, no action seems to be taken even though the area is popular locality both with locals and tourists. It would be very appropriate if the saline marshlands are truly protected. Once lost, such sites would be lost foreever!
