Coastal waters monitoring project in Gozo

Dwejra and Mgarr ix-Xini are now established as new marine protected areas by the Malta Environment and Planning Authority, MEPA.  Other areas were also established in Malta, for a total of 18,000 hectares of the Maltese marine environment. The sites, which include a significant stretch of area along the North East of the Islands and three smaller areas at Mgarr ix-Xini, Dwejra and an area between Ghar Lapsi and Filfla, are being protected to preserve the underwater habitats for the enjoyment of both present and future generations.
