Up for joining a night walk around Foresta 2000?
Members of Klabb Ħuttaf, the youth wing of BirdLife Malta, have an opportunity to immerse themselves in the nocturnal wildlife of one of the most bio-diverse locations on the island.
Foresta 2000 is an area of natural habitat which has been restored as a Mediterranean woodland. Overlooking Għadira Bay, the site stretches almost coast to coast offering not only diverse wildlife but also fantastic views across the valley.
The woodland is a mosaic comprised of steppe, woodland, garrigue and maquis habitat which provide shelter for birds, insects, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. This beautifully rich ecosystem has lots to offer visitors looking to immerse themselves into typically Mediterranean nature.
Klabb Ħuttaf is Malta’s largest wildlife club for young naturalists.
It is an offshoot of BirdLife for young naturalists and offers several outdoor activities such as bird-watching, hiking, tree-planting, boat trips and visits to nature reserves. Teenage members also go camping, bike-hiking and night hiking.
“On an enigmatic Sunday evening, we will have bat detectors to help us identify the 11 bat species that can be found in Malta. We will also use red light torches to spot chameleons hiding in the twilight, which are abundant at Foresta 2000.”
