Testimonials

Matthew Calleja (2021)

I have been volunteering with Nature Trust since the end of March 2021. I originally joined to work on a project regarding the ecosystem of the ponds in il-Maghluq Marsascala. However, I continued to help in the other sites managed by Nature Trust. Through my voluntary work, I learnt a lot about the local ecosystems and the flora and fauna found in Malta. I also got to meet a lot of people from different cultures, and made lots of new friends. This experience will also help me in my studies, as I will be undertaking BSc. in Biology.

Laurine Parmentier (March – August 2021):

I did my internship and implemented my thesis project at Nature Trust Malta for 7 months. I loved every moment of it, especially because we had the opportunity to work outdoors. I think I really improved my creative skills and became really independent as I had to create my whole thesis project by myself. I worked on an algae bioreactor that purifies the water and it was really challenging for me!

Maria Kleegrewe (July –September 2021):

I worked for three months with Nature Trust Malta and I enjoyed the intercultural exchange with students from France, Slovakia and Italy. The internship provided me with valuable insight in the restoration of ecosystems. We worked on different sights all over the island removing invasive species and planting indigenous ones. I also got the chance to work for some time in the turtle wildlife rehabilitation centre, which was a wonderful experience, but also painful because not every turtle you take care of survives. All in all the time at Nature Trust Malta encouraged me to pursue a B.Sc. in International Forest Ecosystem Management.

Martina Brocco ( October 2021)

I had the opportunity to work with Nature Trust Malta for 1 months, during my Erasmus. It was all very interesting, because I learned so many things about nature, I visited so many places with different environments. We helped the flora of Malta removing the invasive species and protecting the native one, also planting and watering them. For my studies it is a perfect experience especially for the biological part.

I learned to be more creative end made me link a close relationship with nature. Moreover I also had the opportunity to socialize with other people from other countries than mine, and had the opportunity to improve my English.

Shaun Miguel Darmanin (February 2021)

I spent 1 month at NTM as part of my BSc studies, and I can honestly say that it was the best internship I have been on. Firstly, the work was varied depending on the project and site, and every day I had the opportunity to put in practice the theory that I learned during my lectures. The work involved invasive species removal, planting of tree saplings and site clean ups. Second, the people at NTM made me feel a part of the team immediately, and I enjoyed working with the interns from all over Europe that were working there as I learned a lot from them.
