Foresta 2000 in Mellieha offered a great opportunity for biology students in year 9 to observe and put into practice theories learnt in class. Students were guided by a very knowledgeable teacher from Bird life who helped students in understanding acts of nature and thus appreciate more its wonders. Students were explained how this young woodland was born in 2000 with thousands of trees being planted. Concern about climate change and its effect on different species was outlined, as students got to observe different species of plants and insects, which are early in their season due to the current elevated temperatures. Students got to walk through the different habitats in this woodland and carry out different fieldwork tasks which allowed them to understand better topics covered in class.
