  • 19/01/2018 Amphibians of Park on WebGIS

    The Foreste CasentinesiNational Park has activated a new tool (WebGIS) that allows to access in a simple and direct way to a series of maps on all aspects concerning the protected area: from nature to history, culture and management of the territory. The purpose of WebGIS is to share information, results of research and surveys carried out on the territory, to promote the knowledge of the protected area, to stimulate visitors to a conscious visit and inform them about biodiversity and the history that can be encountered along the paths of the Park.

    The tool is the result of the work carried out in 2017 as part of the bursary dedicated to Pietro Zangheri. New maps and contents will be published periodically in order to develop more and more the platform and keep it always updated.

    Consult the maps of the distribution of amphibians at this

  • 27/11/2017 Meeting with farmers of Pratovecchio Stia

    The meeting between LIFE WetFlyAmphibia and the farmers of Pratovecchio Stia was held on Thursday 23 November 2017. It was very interesting to see the farmers' interest about the project interventions and their memories about the "puddle frog" and its singing at sunset. The yellowbelly toad has in fact disappeared for about 10 years in Casentines Forests.
    Farmers have also signaled the presence of springs, ponds and watering ponds in their pasture areas and becoming available to evaluate the possibility of extending livestock conservation operations even in their land.

  • 22/11/2017 WetFlyAmphibia & LIFE Slovenija

    Last November 9, Life WetFlyAmphibia was host to the workshop organized by LIFE Slovenija, which was aimed to illustrating to the technicians and managers of the protected areas of Slovenia how to manage a LIFE project. For us it was an honor to receive the invitation to bring our experience as a concrete example of using European financial instruments to carry out conservation projects within a National Park.

  • 21/11/2017 Meeting with farmers and breeders

    WETFLYAMPHIBIA will meet farmers and breeders of Pratovecchio Stia (AR) on 23/11/2017 at 17.00 in Pratovecchio (AR). The meeting is part of E6 action "Awareness Raising Project", which aims to inform stakeholders of LIFE objectives, LIFE project activities and good practices that farms can also implement to preserve amphibians.

  • 14/11/2017 WFA LIFE and children of Forlimpopoli

    During the photographic exhibition "Pietro Zangheri's Romagna ", organized by the "Scholastic Institute E. Rosetti" in Forlimpopoli (FC) from 6th to 10th November 2017, WETFLYAMPHIBIA LIFE PROJECT met the children of IIIB, IC, IIIC and VC grades. A educational laboratory was set up in the Don Milani ex-gym, to talk about amphibians and to teach children the activities of our project.

  • 27/10/2017 Work with us: questionnaires are available

    The European project LIFE WetFlyAmphibia also aims to monitor the services offered to tourists, hikers, local communities and agri-pastoral workers, with reference both to the actions taken and to the protected area of national Park. In order to help collect this data and to improve the services offered, some questionnaires were created for stakeholders. The questionnaires are free of charge and are available on "Contacts - Work with us".

  • 18/10/2017 Interventions in the Tuscan Park areas

    Some of the interventions of the LIFE project WETFLYAMPHIBIA for the conservation of amphibians have already been implemented on the Tuscan areas of the National Park between 2016 and 2017. The following video shows these actions:

    • Il Lago Refuge: reconstitution of a wetland with cutting of tree vegetation and restoration of the source for feeding the pond
    • Il Lago Rifuge: realization of a tank and a puddle. The area is one of the five repopulation sites of the Yellowbelly toad
    • Stradelli Farm: realization of a tank and 4 ponds. The area is one of the 5 sites of repopulation of Yellowbelly toad
    • Metaleto Camaldoli: shading of coniferous shadows and restoration of 5 ponds in the basin pool. The area is one of the 5 sites of repopulation of Yellowbelly toad
    • Camaldoli's Hermitage: shading of shady conifers and restoration of two ponds in the basin

    Executive design and work direction was followed by DREAM. The interventions at the Il Lago and Stradelli were carried out by UMCASEN, while those in Camaldoli and in Eremo by CFS.

     

     

     

     

     

  • 10/10/2017 Ponds restoration at Pian d'Astura

    Work in progress within the National Park of Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona and Campigna for the restoration of amphibians reproductive sites. A warm thanks to the volunteers of the Foreste Casentinesi National Park, which helped us to enlarge the almost vanished ponds near Pian d'Astura, which are important breeding sites for the yellowbelly toad.

  • 25/09/2017 Restoration at refuge Il Lago

    The restoration work of Il Lago, a humid area existing near the homonymous shelter along the road leading to Vitareta, has begun. The pond represents a suitable environment for the preservation of the Yellowbelly toad and the Italian crested newt, unfortunately over the years the water level and the size of the pond have been considerably reduced, so much so that only a large puddle is observed today. The work in progress consists in operations to increase the level in the depression and to allow even longer water time to stretch. In addition, as the Yellowbelly toad needs sunny environments, it is necessary to cut the trees that shade the area.
