A new publication was launched recently in Gozo by BirdLife Malta – Il-Wirt Naturali ta’ Ghawdex. This is the latest book by BirdLife Malta’s former President and veteran Gozitan ornithologist Joe Sultana.
This new book is a collection of 84 articles penned by Sultana and were published in the Gozitan Diocese’s monthly journal – Il-Hajja f’GHawdex – between October 2007 and February 2017.
The launch was held at the Ministry for Gozo, and in attendance were the author himself, his children, and Jason Aloisio – the producer and designer of the book.
Minister for Gozo Dr Justyne Caruana and the Head of the EcoGozo and Regional Development Directorate Vicky Xuereb, also attended the event.
During the launch Jason Aloisio explained how this new publication showcases nature’s beauty, whilst also helping people cherish nature more and further understand the need to safeguard it.
Minister Caruana stated that it is “our duty to try and reclaim the parts of nature which those before us did not manage to save.”
The book, with 224 pages, also includes a biography and a bibliography of the author. Each article features a number of coloured photographs, for a total of more than 500 photos, most of which were taken by the author himself.
This video, which was shown at the book launch, gives an insight into the new publication.
