The monthly meetings at the National Museum of Natural History in Mdina offer you the opportunity to end the week in style.

Welcomed with a glass of wine and some nibbles, in one of the rooms of the 18th century palace, you will join a group of nature enthusiasts to watch a BBC documentary, and then involve yourself in the following discussion.

The third session in this series of informal public meetings is taking place today Friday, 22nd March. Participants will watch the documentary ‘Strangers in the Garden’ produced in 1987 by the BBC and presented by David Attenborough. This documentary focuses on issues such as the human impact on the Mediterranean Sea after the opening of the Suez Canal, the Lessepsian species migration, alien species, over-fishing, over-crowding, deforestation, tourism, and much more. The subsequent discussion will analyse these issues and will also explore what we have learnt in the last 30 years.
