Busy Bees

dissemination(s): newspaper, other, school media, website, YRE Presentation to Form 1 students in class
filed under Video Clips

This video was shot in May 2014- the official opening of Pembroke Nature and Heritage Park, Malta. This park is the home of hard working bees. These insects are crucial in pollinating different wild flowers and agricultural plants. Moreover, bees produce unique natural products such as honey, propolis and beeswax. Without bees, we would have less fruit and vegetables; thus less food for humans and animals. Bees need to be protected from harmful pesticides. So, organic farming should be the right solution for a better sustainable environment.

YRE Winner – Video 15-18yrs: Free Rosy and her Friends

Five loggerhead turtles-Rosy, Ricardo, Spartacus, Kiko and Bizu were released last November from the Blue Flag beach of Paradise Bay Hotel at Ċirkewwa. These marine turtles were found injured in our sea after swallowing fishing hooks, nylon and fishing lines. They were given the necessary medical treatment for several weeks. A key solution to protect these creatures is by educating the younger generation. We have to keep our sea clean from waste especially plastic bags because every year a number of turtles die suffocated by mistaking plastic bags for jellyfish. With our help, these marine species can live longer in cleaner seas.
