Earth is a little sadder today for the loss of one of its most dedicated, wise and knowledgeable spokespeople. Friends of the Earth Malta deeply mourns the sudden loss of its leader, colleague, and friend Julian Manduca who had put it many hours of volunteer time during his many years at FoE Malta to help protect Malta's environment. Our sympathies are with his family, and we extend sincere condolences at this sad time. The volunteers of FoE Malta will carry on his good efforts to protect our land, air, and water as best we can without his loyal leadership, but we will miss him dearly. May his legacy live on.
