group of em­ploy­ees from Mapfre Mid­dle­sea and MSV Life par­tic­i­pated in an event at Xrobb l-Gha­gin Park on Thurs­day 28 Oc­to­ber. The event was held in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Na­ture Trust Malta.

Xrobb l-Għaġin Na­ture Park, sit­u­ated within the lo­cal­ity of Marsaxlokk, con­sists of over 155,000 square me­ters with scenic views of South East Malta.

Na­ture Trust Malta is a non­profit and non-gov­ern­men­tal en­vi­ron­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tion which works to pro­tect plants and an­i­mals in the Mal­tese Is­lands, help­ing to save from ex­tinc­tion some of the lo­cal en­demic species. The NGO works on site man­age­ment and habi­tat restora­tion, ed­u­ca­tion and wildlife res­cue among oth­ers.

In Xrobb l-Gha­gin, Na­ture Trust main­tains the pro­tec­tion of ex­ist­ing nat­u­ral habi­tats, namely garigue, steppe and en­demic cliff com­mu­ni­ties as well as af­foresta­tion of over 15,000 trees with in­dige­nous trees and shrubs within de­graded ar­eas.

Ad­ja­cent to the Na­ture Park is a Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Cen­tre which is main­tained solely us­ing re­new­able en­ergy, through wind tur­bines and pho­to­voltaic pan­els and the use of treated waste­water and col­lected rain water. The site also uses nat­u­ral day­light and ven­ti­la­tion.

“The work be­ing car­ried out by en­vi­ron­men­tal NGOs such as Na­ture Trust Malta is in­dis­pen­si­ble. The pro­tec­tion of the en­vi­ron­ment and wildlife is ex­tremely im­por­tant and we need to do our part,” As­sis­tant Gen­eral Man­ager Fer­nando Da­campo said.

The Group sup­ports Na­ture Trust Malta.
