Fresh water courses are becoming quite scarce locally and this is mainly due to the excessive increase in the built up environment. Such scenes as the one shown in the picture are amazingly beautiful. Fresh water communities are also habitats for numerous species such as the endangered and endemic Maltese Fresh Water Crab – Potamon P. fluviatile lanfrancoi and the Maltese Painted Frog – Discoglossus pictus. Fresh water communities are highly important since a rare number of species use it as their habitat. Protection of such areas however has to start from each and every one of us and informing is the major element.
