While being a common occurrence worldwide, this species of jellyfish is rarely seen in Maltese waters.

The Aurelia Sp. is reportedly innocuous, which means that it does not cause harm upon contact.

Recognised by its four, horseshoe-shaped gonads, the moon jellyfish sighting is part of the marine biologists ‘Spot the Jellyfish’ citizen science campaign. Anyone spotting these creatures is urged to photograph and report their findings whilst also maintaining the sanctity of the sea creatures’ homes.

A number of street signs closer to the signs have also been installed to warn drivers, but it is so far unknown when the camera will start to become operational.

This new installation follows months of pressure and requests from the Attard Local Council and frequenters of the area after multiple road accidents took place in that same road.

Drivers stay safe!
