Scenic diversity of Emilia Romagna

Wildlife and conservation

Thanks to its scenic diversity, Emilia Romagna is home to many animal and plant species. While the Po delta features thousands of bird species the dense woods in the heart of the region offer an appropriate refugium for many forest creatures. In addition to several nature reserves Emilia Romagna – like many other regions in Italy these days – focuses on sustainable tourism and thus conservation. The large numbers of tourists bring plenty of problems with them, particularly during summer months, yet the scepticism of said tourists reinforces the effort put into conservation.

Animal and plant life in Emilia Romagna

Emilia Romagna offers suitable habitat for a number of animal and plant species with the Po delta in the north and the diverse mountains and hills around the Apennines. Many species of birds can be found between the characteristic rows of poplar and reeds of the Po delta, which is also home to a rookery of flamingos. The inland oak, chestnut, and beech forests feature scopes of boars, roe deer and, as of late, wolves.

Tourism and conservation

With approx. 10 million tourists per year Emilia Romagna doubtlessly is one of Italy’s main tourism regions. Particularly beach tourists surge to the Adriatic vacation spots during summer and decisively contribute to the region’s economic performance. Furthermore there are a substantial number of active vacationers and city tourists in the region and its historic cities. As of recently, Emilia Romagna places emphasis on conservation and sustainable tourism. Several inland nature reserves and conservational measures along the coasts contributed towards an improvement of the conservational status quo in recent years.
