As part of the campaign, ‘Greener and Cleaner Gozo,’ recently launched by the Ministry for Gozo, members of The Gozo Tourism Association Council organised a clean-up initiative at ix-Xatt l-Ahmar, limits of Ghajnsielem.
The Council members, led by the Gozo Tourism Association Chairman Mr. Paul Scicluna, covered the shoreline area between Mgarr and ix-Xatt l-Ahmar as far as the divers kitting up area.Apart from the plastic bottles, plastic containers, empty hunting cartridges and paper, the other waste collected included a fridge door, steel shelves and nylon ropes.
The organisers said that Ix-Xatt l-ahmar area was chosen, since it is one of the most frequented dive sites, especially during the month of May, when Gozo experiences strong North westerly winds.
Through this initiative the Gozo Tourism Association said that it would like to send the message, that although, the Association is very critical about the upkeep of the destination, it is however ready to give its limited input for a cleaner destination.
The Gozo Tourism Association thanked the Ghajnsielem Local Council for their co-operation in this initiative.
