On Friday 29th May, at around 10pm, a loggerhead turtle was noted laying eggs on Ramla Bay in Gozo. This was the first recorded and confirmed nest in Gozo after 70 years. Eco-Schools/YRE students attending Gozo College Middle School started collecting data from the turtle nest site at Ramla Bay, Gozo. The purpose of this study was to investigate the ideal environmental conditions which result in a successful hatching rate. This study investigated the turtle nest site, sand temperature, weather conditions and cloud cover. The students measured air temperature, humidity and barometric pressure and the GLOBE Observer App and Observation Cloud chart to measure the cloud cover following the steps of the GLOBE Protocols (GLOBE, 2014). The main objective was to find out the sand temperature around the nest and how it affects the hatchings during the incubation period.

Littering can lead to soil, water and air pollution. It also leaves a bad impact on the environment because hazardous chemicals can leach out of the litter and pollute the soil and water nearby. Litter may be a threat to certain species, such as reptiles, and other small animals as they may become trapped in plastic bags and suffocate. We should be aware that there is life on land and that we need to keep these places clean and beautiful as we are ruining nature and the environment around us. It is a shame that we litter the environment that we need to live in!
