Salviamo l’Orso volunteers restore some trails on the Mainarde Mountains

25 Settembre 2018 | Non categorizzato

The Mainarde mountain range is one of the wildest parts of the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park. From the 23rd to the 27th July 2018, some Italian and foreign volunteers of Salviamo l’Orso worked to restore the signage of the trails M2, M6 and M7

This action was part of the project “Let’s take action for the bear”, supported by the ALMNP and sponsored by EOCA (European Outdoor Conservation Association) aiming at enhancing the fruition of these three trails, close their deviations and consequently minimize disturbance to bears in areas where they forage, winter and breed cubs. In fact, improving accessibility to the area through identifiable paths is a strategy to prevent that hikers, especially those who are not familiar with the area, do not roam off trail, to strengthen the control of the territory and reduce illegal actions.
