A new Patrolling Ranger Unit has been announced by the Heritage Parks Federation Unit (HPF) and it will be covering additional areas around Malta to safeguard and protect it all. The federation, set up by local NGOs Nature Trust Malta, Din l-Art Helwa and GAIA Foundation, was an incentive to safeguard and monitor the Majjistral Park area. The Ranger Unit will be adding sites managed by Nature Trust – FEE Malta and Din l-Art Helwa to its areas as of the 13th of September.
The federation posted to Facebook revealing how in 2021, the Majjistral Park ‘implemented more frequent patrols and this proved to be very beneficial, both for protecting the Park’s biodiversity and to educate the visitors on the green code; how to behave when being in nature.’
The rangers will receive training in different areas realign from flora and fauna, Natura2000 sites, wildlife rescue, first aid, basic fire safety and environmental laws. With a fundraiser set to launch shortly along with a call for volunteers, the unit is endorsed by the Malta Police.
