A group of MeDirect employees have given up part of their weekend to join Nature Trust Malta (NTM) in a clean-up of Gnejna Bay which took place on Saturday. In addition to raising awareness about the importance of keeping beaches clean ahead of the busy summer period, the event also helped to raise funds for a Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre which will be set up by NTM soon.
MeDirect employees who were not able to attend the clean-up but wished to support this project were also able to contribute towards a group donation towards the building of the Wildlife Rehab Centre
Nature Trust’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre will be the first of its kind in Malta and will cost approximately €2,000,000 to develop. The facility, located at Xrobb l-Ghagin will help rehabilitate wildlife from across Malta and the surrounding seas. Turtles, cetaceans, hedgehogs, shrews, lizards, snakes, bats, and avian fauna will all be cared for at the centre which will also be open to the public. As much as possible all the wildlife which receives treatment at the centre will be released back into its natural environment.
More information on NTM’s wildlife rehabilitation centre is available here.
