Shearwater Night Walk at The White Tower (FULLY-BOOKED)

June 6, 2022 2:24 pm

Date: Sunday, 3 July 2022
Time: 19:00-22:00
Location: It-Torri l-Abjad (White Tower)

Join us in marking the occasion of World Seabirds Day with the BirdLife Malta LIFE PanPuffinus! project team.

We will be given a tour of the 17th Century historical Torri l-Abjad (White Tower), with access to the roof terrace which boasts incredible views across to Comino and Gozo. The views will be particularly stunning as we will be there at sunset. We will also be given a talk by one of BirdLife Malta’s LIFE PanPuffinus! project team members about the significance of the this area for seabirds, particularly the vulnerable Yelkouan Shearwaters and the threats that these birds face. Such threats include light pollution along the coastlines of Malta which will be the focus of this event. This location is a great spot to hear the calling of shearwaters as they approach the cliffs at sundown to nest, so we will head off for a night-time walk along the coast to L-Irdum tal-Madonna to listen out for these birds to finish off the evening event.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about seabirds, light pollution and the historical significance of the White Tower as well as network with like-minded nature-enthusiasts.

Bring along a redlight torch if you have one and wear comfortable footwear. Spaces are limited, so book quickly! To book click on the button below.
