During the month of September three Blue Flag educational activities were carried out at Golden Bay.
The activities were sponsored by the Malta Tourism Authority and carried out by Il-Majjistral Nature and History Park.
The activity leader spoke to people on the beach about the importance of keeping our beaches clean and safe for the sake of visitors and the wildlife that is supported by the sand and marine habitats. They were also made aware that Golden Bay is part of Majjistral Park, Malta’s largest nature park, which they were also encouraged to visit.
The younger generation were given educational information as well as fun tutorials on how to paint the Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta caretta) which has nested twice in the last 4 years at Golden Bay, the marine life that can be frequently seen when snorkelling or diving on the coast of Malta and species like the native Sea Daffodil (Pancratium maritimum) which live on the rare sand dune habitat.
The Blue Flag is an international eco-label awarded to over 5000 beaches and marinas in over 40 countries across Europe and the rest of the world. To qualify for the Blue Flag Programme sites need to prove that they are clean, safe and respect the natural environment which involves strict criteria on water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management, safety and management of services.
