Malta: the candidate INHERITURA area is undertaking planting trees and trying to win a competition

The candidate INHERITURA area of Malta, which is the Il-Majjistral Nature and History Park, is busy in undertaking two important activities.

 

Around 1.000 indigenous trees and shrubs  are currently being planted at Il-Majjistral Nature and History Park as part of ongoing works by Ambjent Malta to improve the natural environment, and part of an agreement with the Turkish Ministry for Agriculture and Forestry.

The selection of trees include carob, olive and the national tree talgħargħar. Watch the video here: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=453791598924478

The Park is also a finalist for the Malta Waste Reduction Awards 2020! During 2019 various waste removal operations were carried out in the area called Prajjet found in the northern-most part of the Park. The area is a coastal rocky landscape which hosts a wide range of coastal flora, including a number of endemic species (eg. Maltese Sea Lavender), and low cliffs that are a vital habitat for the breeding Yelkouan Shearwater, a bird species which is listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.The cleaning activity was part of a long-term rehabilitation project to restore the area to its natural state and to be able to plant it with indigenous trees and plants. The material collected included 800 tonnes of construction waste and 300 kg of domestic litter.

The winner will be announced soon, so good luck to our Partner.
