Approximately 200 Girl Guides have been welcomed by BirdLife Malta to its nature reserves as part of its ongoing partnership between the Malta Girl Guides.
Brownie Discovery: Life beyond land – was a collaboration which also included Sharklab-Malta, and the Brownies aged 7 to 10 from all across Gozo and Malta were hosted at Ghadira Nature Reserve and Foresta 2000 to take part in a number of fun nature activities. Other activities were held at Ghadira Bay.
The activities by BirdLife Malta included an Unnatural Trail for the participants to learn about the effects of leaving rubbish in nature, Meet a Tree to learn about trees which can be found in Malta, and Bird Detectives which consisted of birdwatching and bird ringing.
Sharklab-Malta’s activities included Beach Plant Detectives which was a treasure hunt for plants to learn about beach plant life in Malta, Shark Eggcase Study to learn about different ways sharks breed and Things you Didn’t Know about Sharks which had the children look at the different body parts of the sharks you find in the Mediterranean Sea
BirdLife Malta said that it strongly believes that “inspiring young people to spend more time outdoors is an essential part of protecting our wildlife, and BirdLife Malta’s mission.”
BLM concluded by saying “that is why we are working in partnership with Malta Girl Guides to develop workshops, leader training and activities to encourage further connection and time outdoors with nature.”
