Il-Majjistral Nature and History Park Rehabilitation of Il-Prajjet


WHAT will be done


The ‘Il-Prajjiet’ area forms part of the Il-Majjistral Nature and History Park in the North West of Malta. It is designated as Natura 2000 and is found along the northern boundary of the park.

It is a coastal rocky landscape hosting a wide range of coastal flora, including a number of endemic species, and low cliffs that are a vital habitat for the breeding Yelkouan Shearwater, a bird species which is listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.

Unfortunately most of the area is currently in a degraded state due to construction waste that has been dumped in the past and which mainly came from the creation of a slipway. There is also a problem of domestic litter including plastic bottles, tin cans, paper and glass. The dumped material has negatively impacted a once natural habitats and is an eye sore.

Rehabilitating this area to an almost natural state is a long-term project that Il-Majjistral Park is currently working on. The work consists of: 1. Removal of dumped waste using heavy duty machinery (waste is being carefully sorted to reduce waste sent to landfill and reused as soil where possible), 2. Removal of alien species, 3. Removal of illegal structures, 4. Re-planting of the area with indigenous species, 6. Car access control, 7. Setting up an irrigation system for newly planted species

Il-Majjistral Park would like to raise awareness about this project by having an educational event for the general public,the main stakeholders of the Park. The event will include a short talk about the natural aspects of the area and the work that is taking place to rehabilitate it to an almost natural state. We would also like to actively involve them in the project by having a small clean up of the domestic waste that is found there.
