The summer weeks mean holidays for most people, whereas for others they serve for spreading their wings abroad on adventures worth their weight in gold in terms of the subjects they happen to be studying. A number of Maltese and Gozitan students have spent the past seven weeks discovering nature in Romania.
This group of students has one thing in common – love of conservation, nature and biology. Some of them are studying these subjects. Operation Wallacea is an organisaton based in Canada which provided an opportunity for Maltese and Gozitan students to literally ‘live’ their studies, and for the past seven weeks one group followed another on expeditions which Operation Wallacea organises for students in a number of countries worldwide.
The students visited Romania, specifically Apold and Angofa, where Television Malta presenter Moira Delia accompaneid them on their adventure in the country’s natural environment. In fact, filming was carried out throughout these expeditions for another series of Animal Diaries which will continue to be screened on Television Malta from October.
This is an experience which every secondary and university student interested in or studying conservation or biology, or simply nature lovers, hope and aim for.
