Abstract: This editorial argues how Gozo cannot be all things to all people. Niche tourism requires specialising in a certain direction, involving the provision of a special product desired by a section of the population. When however, such needs conflict with the long-term viability of Gozo, and particularly when its very special characteristics, its flora and fauna and its natural beauty are threatened, then it is certainly time to stop and consider. No short term development should over-ride the long-term effects on the eco-system of the island, and none should be permitted, whatever the political cost.
