In the last days Salviamo l’Orso and Rewilding Apennines volunteers have cleaned up a large lay-by on the SR17, a road that runs along the Riserva Monte Genzana Nature Alto Gizio in the municipality of Pettorano sul Gizio, and an illegal dumping area in Sulla Villa, in the municipality of Ortona dei Marsi.
Cleaning interventions are a routine activity of our volunteers to strengthen the feeling of a Bear Smart Community and it is sometimes frustrating to find full of garbage places that had been cleaned a few months earlier. Unfortunately, incivility does not answer to anyone and still many people don’t realize the environmental damage that waste causes to the environment. How it is possible to travel along these stretches of road, looking such a beauty, and throw waste from the window remains a mystery to us.
Congratulations guys and thanks for your work!
