Fun Walk for Trees

On the 7th April eight schools ranging from primary to secondary walked from Burmarrad in a fun walk that led to the newly renovated Salini Park. Schools participating in this activity were encouraged to organise fund raising activities to collect money for the 34U campaign. Upon arrival the students were greeted by the Hon. George Pullicino (Minister for Resources and Rural affairs), participating schools donated the sum of €605. Mr. Vincent Attard president of Nature Trust Malta also donated 200 trees to the Hon. George Pullicino. During this activity, Nature Trust Malta together with the Hon. George Pullicino and Hon. Dr. Mario De Marco (Parliamentary Secretary for Tourism, the Environment and Culture) signed a contract to extend their commitment towards the EkoSkola programme, a now deeply routed programme in schools highlighting Education for Sustainable Development. Another feature of the event was the publication of the Central Mediterranean Naturalist Journal – a journal with a 41-year history of scientific research about our natural heritage. Besides general information about the local environment, this year’s publication includes information about local satellite islets and a report about 10 new plant and animal species of the Maltese Islands.
