Nature and Community
A project born to promote the understanding and protection of the wolf in its natural habitat enhancing, at the same time, pastoralism and breeding activities practiced through the respect of the territory. A great opportunity that wants to involve and sensitize the widest number of people. In terms of rewilding interventions, maintenance of ecological corridors and areas of naturalistic interest, the project represents an attraction for travellers looking for a corner of nature to know and protect, actively participating in the conservation of biodiversity. Facing fear and disinformation, we prefer to focus on exchange and information: During June 2020, LOTO team visited Val Taro, one of the main areas of intervention of "Io non ho paura del lupo" and, noticing commitment and solid expertise, it has decided to develop a one-week travel proposal designed for all those in love with wildlife and open areas. The weekly activities of the "On the wolf's tracks" excursion will take place in Val Taro. Here, in 2016, #iononhopauradellupo association carried out the first activities dedicated to the monitoring of the wolf and its expansion on the territory within cliffs, woods, streams and pastures, landscapes proper of the Northern Apennines. Coexistence between wolf and humans is still possible thanks also to people working day after day to defend the cultural and natural wealth of the country in which they live. If you are interested in the week dedicated to "those who are not afraid of the wolf", fill in the form at the end of the page and read the details in our travel news!
Curiosity: #iononhopauradellupo is active not only in the Apennine areas, but it monitors also: the Alps and the Eastern Pre-Alps, the Lessinia upland near Verona, Monte Grappa, Asiago upland and Col Visentin, all areas near the border between Veneto and Trentino regions. So many territories to observe, just one aim: increase the natural return of an animal that is too often a victim of poaching and prejudices, without any concern about its extraordinary ecological role.
