Vince Attard, President of Nature Trust Malta, emphasised the interconnected nature of these initiatives; “While ‘Saving Our Blue’ raises awareness about marine pollution, the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre provides essential care for injured wildlife, including sea turtles affected by plastic waste.”

A new feature of this year’s campaign is a mobile unit equipped with VR glasses to enhance public engagement. Participants also explored the scenic Xrobb l-Għaġin, now a Special Area of Conservation, and  met Maggie the sea turtle mascot, named after a rescued turtle injured by sea debris in 2019.
