Yelkouan Shearwater
Majjistral Nature and History Park and BirdLife Malta would like to invite you to take part in with Nature2020 an international event to raise awareness on the importance of protecting our local nature and ecosystem.On Saturday 22nd May 2021 we will be celebrating the International Day for Biological Diversity!
Majjistral Nature and History Park together with BirdLife Malta, are aiming to give a strong message on the need to protect the diversity in our local ecosystem. This will be done by laying 500 pieces of coloured clothing on the ground which will generate a giant image from above of an endangered plant or animal species.
For Malta we have chosen the Yelkouan Shearwater.

This is where you can help! 

You can participate by donating items of clothing or other textiles in specific colours to create the image. We need clothing in: WHITE, GREY or BLACK.
This is a great chance to get rid of some old clothes! We are also accepting towels, sheets and other textile garments in these colours.
Why not ask your friends and family too and donate a whole collection at once?
The drop off location for your clothes or textiles is Salina Nature Reserve, accessible on all days between 7:00am and 8:00pm.  Small collection bins labelled with each colour are outside the Visitor Centre for drop offs.
If you do choose to donate clothing, we encourage you to register on our Google Form, linked on the ‘Register here to donate your clothes!’ button below, so we can keep you up to date about the event.
By registering Birdlife Malta can also send you the links to the videos of the artworks created across the world on the day!
Spread the word with your family and friends.
Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much!

Register here to donate your clothes!
