On the 15th May, 30 students from Saint Theresa College Girls’ Secondary Mrieħel received awards in recognition of their contribution to biodiversity protection in the Maltese Islands.

    The students, aged 12 have all been appointed as Dinja Wahda Rangers as part of the pilot programme for BirdLife Malta’s Dinja Waħda environmental education programme for secondary schools, now in its second year.

    The award ceremony took place in Buskett Gardens today, following an activity in which the students lead guests including the Head of the European Commission Representation in Malta, Martin Bugelli, on a guided “biodiversity tour” around the Buskett-Girgenti Natura 2000 site.

    Along the route, which took the visitors through the “Woodland Garden” area of Buskett, the young Rangers spoke to the visitors about the different habitat types found at the site. Each Ranger gave a short presentation about a different aspect of the site and its biodiversity, providing their audience with accompanying information leaflets.
