Nature and Wildlife

Malta and Gozo has a wide range of wildlife from those that inhabit the island to ones that drop in on their migratory route.

Birdlife Malta is one of the biggest wildlife organisations in Malta with a number of reserves provided home and sheltered to a number of species. In recent years they have overseen successful breeding programs such as adult coots that breed only in Malta. the coots can be seen at Simar, Xemxija floating and feeing around the reeds. You can find plenty of information on Birdlife Malta on their website www.birdlifemalta.org including guides on where and when to view the birds and the reserve locations and faciltiies.
Being a group of islands, marine life features heavily on the agenda with a number of initiatives for the welfare of Marine Life from educational and active programs. The Malta National Aquarium is a great place where locals and tourists can really take a starting interest in the conservation programs in progress.
Bugs are not everyones cup of tea but Malta is home to a number of varieties of bugs, beetles as well as butterflies and chameleons. The Maltese Archaepeligo really does offer a diverse range of animal life and native plants just waiting to be explored.

You can see alot of wildlife in the various visitor gardens across Malta & Gozo like the San Anton Gardens but for true nature lovers there are number of nature reserves to visit with many providing visitor assistants, guides and tours to provide that all important informtion to help you spot and identify the plants and animals.
