Abruzzo Wildlife in Italy
Abruzzo is known for being one of the wildest regions in Italy. Its mountains are characterised by extraordinary biodiversity and the “Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park” is considered one of the best places in Europe for the observation of large mammals, and of course wildlife in Italy.
Among these, the Marsican brown bear (Ursus arctos marsicanus) and the Italian wolf (Canis lupus italicus) and the endemic Apennine Chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica ornata) deserve particular attention.
The Marsican brown bear, endemic to Central Italy, represents one of the flagships of the zoological diversity of the italian territory. Although its population is made up of a small number of specimens, encounters with this species are not uncommon, especially in the spring or late summer when the bears are busy feeding before and after the winter hibernation.
During the weekend we will track this plantigrade, as well another excellence of the Park: the Italian Wolf.
We will also have the opportunity to focus on birdwatching, on the observation of Reptiles and Amphibians, without forgetting to enjoy the wonderful landscapes of the Park and the history and culture of the area.
