A rich biodiversity
Abruzzo, Lazio e Molise National Park is famous in Italy, and all over the world, as a model for nature conservation and environmental safeguard. In the latest 20 years, the Park could harmonically develop thanks to the “zonation” of the territory, leading to the integration between conservation and development and to an agreement with the Park Municipalities to solve city planning problems. The visits to the Park are controlled and selected, and many things are being done to make this Park increasingly modern and efficient.
The oldest in the Apennines, with an important role in the preservation of species such as the Italian wolf, Abruzzo chamois and Marsican brown bear, the park is around two thirds beech forest though many other trees grow in the area including the silver birch and black and mountain pines. Other characteristic fauna of the park are roe deer, wild boar and the white-backed woodpecker.
