Bird Trapping sites - too much

Post by greeny » Mon Feb 20, 2006 7:06 pm

I hate bird trapping sites especialy when they are overcrowded and make an area practically impossible to pass through. These in the photo I attach, takes the whole cliff-top over Fawwara.

When the goverment is going to release a map of what is public and what is RTO ?

Where are the green wardens to check these sites?

And you forgot to mark another one or two at the very far left. Yes, the map is really needed - I wonder how many nice flora there is over this garigue, but I don't dare to explore for obvious reasons.

Same problem in the area betweeb Hagar Qim and Mnajdra. The area is packed with trapping sites. The garigue is quite rich there. We identified some 80 floral species in the area during biology fieldwork this year (April). The areas near the trapping sites are cleared of vegetation to the detriment of the poor species involved. Going there during the trapping season is next to dangerous. Hope they dont treat our tourists the same way they treat my students and colleagues!

:roll: And MTA spends all that Lm to promote Malta.. Bah what a waste! Typical Maltese ignorance! And considering that most of these trapping sites are abusive. Well what can I say... good luck on your next visit to Malta
