A floristic survey was carried out on the islets of tal-Halfa and tac-Cawl, situated off the southern coast of Gozo, to verify the results of a recently published paper where it was concluded that a number of species from these sites are now extinct or were doubtful in a preceding work by a group of scientists in year 2000. This paper confirms the occurrence of most of the species found in the 2000 surveys and additionally reports a significant number of new records of vascular plants including some that are legally protected, listed in the national red data book or considered rare. Taxonomical notes on a few interesting plants are also provided.

If you go again on these islets, I would like to come with you - just for the feeling of being on them!
You are doing great efforts for the Maltese environment, but I assume very few understand the efforts you have to undergo, given that you do these in your free time.
Keep it up Steve
