Barbed wire removal in the Villalago mountains

26 Novembre 2018 | Non categorizzato

In the weekend 10-11th November, Salviamo l’Orso removed 3,364 m of both smooth and barbed wire (equal to 1,300 m of fence) in Macchia di Rose, in the territory of Villalago. Two wonderful sunny days made these mountains between the Valle del Sagittario and the Valle del Giovenco even more enchanting, an area which is so vital to the Marsican bear. We thank all the volunteers who have committed themselves to restore the beauty of the natural landscape, Eoca to have sponsored this initiative, the Municipalities of Villalago and Anversa degli Abruzzi for logistical support, the associations WWF, Rewilding Apennines and Ambiente e/è Vita, the Gole del Sagittario Nature Reserve and WWF Oasis and the Lake San Domenico and Lake Pio Natural Reserve for their enthusiastic participation. Weather permitting, we will replicate on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 November, because there is still a lot of work to do to free these mountains from barbed wire.
