“The Natural History of the Maltese Islands as seen through a photographer’s lens takes the cause of nature conservation in Malta forward in more than one way. In its portraits of Maltese nature, it documents just how rich and vibrant our natural heritage is, making it easy to appreciate it in all its uniqueness. In its didactic and skill-building mission, this book also lays the foundation for creating wider interest in nature photography and Maltese natural heritage amongst present and future generations, serving to demonstrate the distinctiveness of nature in Malta to a wider audience.”
