As you can see in the picture above there is natural spring water found in Landrijiet, limits of Rabat, which is contaminated by illegal dumping. It is a great pity that only a few people know about it. After a rainy day this spring has a lot more water than shown in the picture above. Maybe clear signs with adequate information should be placed in the vicinity not only to prohibit people from dumping unwanted items in the stream but also to explain the ecological importance of such freshwater streams. Fresh water habitats such as these can be home to various species such as the painted frog and the Maltese fresh water crab. Both species are becoming endangered so more awareness is required!
