Bear at school
The Brown Bear is the species symbol of Italian nature. It is a common heritage to preserve and defend, because it is now confined in few remote areas of the central Apennines.
The history of Abruzzo and its mountains has always been characterized from the herd of sheep.
The life of the shepherds was conditioned from the harsh mountainous terrain and the rigors of the climate and for ages embarked on a long trip with their herds in search of pasture to the milder winter Tavoliere.

Abruzzo region of parks
Abruzzo is considered the "green heart of Europe", as approximately 33% of its territory is protected, while the national average and European does not exceed 10%. In our region there are three major National Parks (National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, National Park of Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga, Majella National Park) and 2 large regional parks (Sirente Regional Park and Regional Park of Ernici and Simbruini), as well as numerous WWF oasis. Therefore, the project aims to study the Abruzzo region as a whole, as a system of protected areas to enhance and preserve. Particular attention will be paid to the so-called "green corridors" that allow the territorial continuity between the various protected areas, making sure that our region is to be considered as a single, huge park and a model to be exported throughout Europe.
