The wild animals of Abruzzo
Do you know that Abruzzo is one of the Italian regions where it is possible to see wild animals more often? A third of the territory is bound to park and houses a huge number of animal and plant species, preserves as much as 50% of the biodiversity of the whole of Europe! In fact, there are over 30 protected areas between National, Regional and Reserve Parks, including marine. Already in 1922 the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise was established: over 90 years have passed under the banner of the preservation of the flora and fauna of the territory and also for this reason a large number of animals, once present throughout 'Appennino, find today in Abruzzo the last natural shelters, avoiding the risk of extinction. Typical cases and emblems of the region are the wolf, the Marsican brown bear and the chamois and then the eagle, the lynx, the otter, the griffon or even lesser known species.
