Malta | Proposed new agency to manage Natura 2000 PAs gets cautious welcome from enviros
[Ed. note: Natura 2000 is the European Union's system of protected natural areas.]
A new agency to manage protected areas is a move in the right direction, provided it does not come up with red tape for NGOs or become a quango, according to environmentalists.
Nature Trust Malta president Vince Attard and environmentalists Alan Deidun and Edward Mallia were commenting about the announcement made in the Budget speech last week.
