Abstract: The laid back attitude of some University Campus students must surely have made them oblivious to the drama that unfolded over the weekend at Wied Ghollieqa nature reserve close to University, where some 150 three-year-old indigenous trees were burned down by a pyromaniac. This comes hot on the heels of similar acts last year within University grounds and on the numerous tree-planting events held by Nature Trust in the reserve on behalf of schools and private entities. NT has been clamouring MEPA to pull up its socks when it comes to nature reserves and release much-needed funds for the installation of security equipment like CCTV cameras, needed also for the vandalism-prone White Tower Bay. With World Environment Day, MEPA's priority should be to preventing similar acts from happening by embarking on more decisive action. Incidentally, May 15 marks the shameful Appeals Board deferments.
