Filfla Nature Reserve . This photo was taken while visiting the Wied iz-Zurrieq area on a small Maltese traditional fishing boat (luzzu). It shows the island of Filfla which forms part of the Maltese archipelago. Up until 1971, Filfla served as ground for military practices. Later on, in 1988, Filfla was declared a nature reserve and access to it was strictly forbidden to preserve the flora and fauna found on the island. Some of the species found on this small island are endemic such as the Filfla wall lizard and the Maltese door-snail. Filfla is certainly a unique site for future generations to enjoy. This photograph , together with other photos, is going to be published in a tourist guide booklet entitled A Journey to the South of Malta. This booklet forms part of the school’s Entrepreneurship through Education Scheme Project 2012.
