Comino Statement

In a statement, Nature Trust (Malta) praised the work done on Comino by the Environment and Resources Authority and Parks Department . The protection of sand dunes, cleaning up of the area and the removal of alien species were crucial in maintaining the island’s diverse habitats and rich biodiversity.

One hopes that such momentum is maintained, and other sites in the Maltese Islands receive the same treatment and effort as Comino for present and future generations to enjoy. Nature Trust (Malta) also appeals to the public for help in keeping the Maltese countryside clean and free from alien species by not littering and not releasing unwanted pets or ornamental plants to the wild.
