2016, Saturday Jan 9 - Mazara del Vallo TP
TripPuzzle is always sensitive on issues of protection of natural heritage and biodiversity of Sicily. That's why we announce that this event is not an excursion but an opportunity to know and protect our territory.
In Mazara del Vallo, a stretch of sea enclosed by a breakwater has become a wonderful lagoon rich in biodiversity.
The continuous connection with the sea allows life to numerous fish that are food for birds ichthyophagous. The water level slope gently into the banks of the lagoon, creating the ecological niche ideal for waders. The Tonnarella lagoon is home, every winter, of more than 30 flamingos. During the breeding season nest in large numbers Fraticelli and Plovers. ISPRA has entered the Tonnarella lagoon between wetlands for censuses IWC in the province of Trapani.
The Tonnarella lagoon risk of being filled by dredging mud from the canal port of Mazara del Vallo. To try to save this oasis of biodiversity from a sad fate, the National Federation Pro Natura has organized for January 9, 2016 a day during which all us fans want to express our interest in this area.
