A new pond at Oasis I Valloni

At the WWF Oasis I Valloni (Albenga, SV), a new pond of about 600 m2 has been created, ready to welcome the pond turtles Emys obicularis, whose presence is now at risk due to various threats, including the destruction of their habitat. The latest rains have completed the filling of the reservoir, which is rapidly being renaturalised; the first Rana dalmatina eggs have been observed and the first tortoises are expected to bask in the sun soon.

Thanks to the volunteers of the Emys Liguria Association for their help and to WWF Savona for making the area available. Discover more: https://www.wwf.it/dove-interveniamo/il-nostro-lavoro-in-italia/oasi/i-valloni/
