Nature Trust (Malta) appeals to all to visiting Gnejna to respect the code of conduct near the site.

Hatchlings are  disoriented with artificial lights and whoever attends this event cannot use any such lights ( we can also explain further the

issues) ;

-  this means there should be no usage of mobiles, torches, cameras (even on mobile) and /or other artificial lights- This is a very critical issue;

- The lights of cars bring parked in  the car park can shine on the nest itself, especially in the lower part of the car park- so it is advisable

that one is very careful     or parks in the upper areas, with lights

pointing in the fields… not towards the sea ;

- there should be no sounds as hatchling’s can easily be distracted;

- people also need to be careful where they step…, since though the passage is cordoned off – this risk can  still exist;

- no  dogs and/or other pets are allowed in the area during this event- same issues as for the ECO apply;

- MEPA has appointed a camera person to film the event with Infrared and this will be available later;

- Hatchings though so cute and  so ‘touchable’ should not be touched  (if touched this can have a negative impact for their survival);

- the hatchlings should be allowed to crawl unhindered to the sea;

- fishing  will be stopped in the bay and movements of boats will only be allowed when the hatchlings have made it out of the bay.

Thanks all for respecting the above and for your full cooperation
