We monitor the presence of the wolf on the territory, in order to obtain data such as the estimate of the population present, evaluate the extension of the flocks in the territory and detect the births and growth of the puppies.
The environmental activism of #iononhopauradellupo departs in 2016 in Val Taro, a territory of large woods, streams, steep cliffs and green pastures that rises in the province of Parma, between the Ligurian Sea and the Po Valley, in the Northern Apennines.
Here the return of the wolf was experienced with surprise and emotion, but also with fear and misinformation, due to the conflict with the activities of the breeders and with the world of hunting.
In this territory, today more than ever, an investigation into the presence of the large predator is indispensable, given that no institutional activity for monitoring the species is underway in this portion of the Apennines outside that carried out by our association.
Not only the Apennine areas, also the Alps and Eastern Pre-Alps are the field of action of the investigation activities of #iononhopauradellupo that through the network of members and volunteers contributes to the monitoring of the wolf on thePlateau of Lessinia in the province of Verona, on the Monte Grappa, In 'Asiago plateau and on Col Visentin in the province of Belluno, areas that have only recently experienced the natural return of the wolf, an animal often little known, sometimes the victim of a ruthless poaching, continuously subjected to a media campaign that tends to discredit its important ecological role, fostering false myths and fears.
Supports #iononhopauradellupo, you will be able to get to know the life and stories of the great predator up close and at the same time be an active part in safeguarding it.
The Val di Taro is located in Emilia-Romagna, in the province of Parma, and takes its name from the river of the same name that originates from Mount Penna and flows into the Po after 126 km as a right tributary.
It borders to the south with the Val di Vara in Liguria and the Val di Magra in Tuscany; to the west with the Ceno and Recchio valleys; to the east with the valley of the Baganza torrent.
Taro River Park
The regional river park of the Taro is a park in the province of Parma which protects over 20 km of river bed of the Taro river between Fornovo di Taro and Ponte Taro.
It was created with the aim of protecting the ancient river landscape, which has now disappeared or is compromised elsewhere.
Part of the park coincides with the site of community interest and the Medio Taro special protection area.
Aveto Regional Natural Park
The Aveto Regional Natural Park is a protected natural area in the province of Genoa, in Liguria. It was established in 1995 as a regional natural park and is included in the municipalities of Santo Stefano d'Aveto, Rezzoaglio, Borzonasca, Mezzanego and Ne, for a total area of 3.018 hectares.
The park covers one of the most important naturalistic areas of the entire Ligurian Apennines. It was established to protect a great variety of geological, fauna and flora, but also to preserve the anthropic footprint of the place.
Lessinia is a geographical area of the Venetian Prealps (Veronese, Vicentine and Gardesane Prealps) located for the most part in the province of Verona and, only partially, in those of Vicenza and Trento. A part of the Lessinia area constitutes the Lessinia Regional Natural Park. It borders to the north with the Val di Ronchi and the Carega Group, to the east by the Val Leogra, to the south with the course of the Adige and the high Veronese plain and to the west with the Val Lagarina. Its peaks reach an altitude between 1500 and 1800 m asl
The Massiccio del Grappa is located on the chain of the Venetian Pre-Alps between the Venetian plain to the south and the central-alpine territories to the north. The Brenta river divides it to the west from the Asiago plateau, while to the east it is the Piave river that traces its border and separates it from the Cesen-Visentin group. To the north we find Lake Corlo and the Conca di Feltre. The Massif, once known as Alpe Madre, is divided between three provinces: Vicenza to the west, Treviso to the south and Belluno to the north-east.
Properly called, Altopiano dei Sette Comuni, it is an almost quadrangular massif extending for about 25 km in an east-west direction and over 30 km in a north-south direction and is bordered by a system of large escarpments. It occupies a central position in the belt of the Venetian Pre-Alps. The plateau, strictly speaking, is formed by a central basin with an average altitude of around 1000 meters, and is bounded to the north by a second summit plateau enclosed by a series of peaks that rise over 2300 meters in height. (maximum elevation at Cima XII), while towards the south the basin is enclosed by a series of hills that slope down towards the Po Valley.
Ridge of Col Visentin
The pre-Alpine ridge of Col Visentin (1.763 m asl) is located in Veneto between the province of Belluno and the province of Treviso.
The northern side, with gentle and panoramic slopes, belongs to the province of Belluno, while the southern one, more steep, to the province of Treviso.
