Protect Oglio Nord Forests

Current threat: Biodiversity loss

The more species diverse a forest is, the better it will resist threats from external agents, produce quality timber, and provide a habitable habitat for wildlife. It' not just for wildlife, but also for the people who want to enjoy the ecosystem services the forest provides.

Boschi dell’Oglio Nord border the river, from Lake Iseo to the Mella River, its affluent. It is a green expanse popular among bird-watchers, as its trees make a home for many riverine species, such as the cormorant, grey heron, mallard, crane and night heron. In recent years, these forests have seen their biodiversity decline due to weedy tree species. In the intervention areas located in the Bosco della Marisca Nature Reserve, in the municipalities of Genivolta (CR) and Villachiara (BS), the forest cover is not only suffering from this threat. Strong weather winds have damaged part of the forest, which needs to be secured and cleared. The intervention involves improving Boschi dell’Oglio Nord by promoting native species instead of weeds. In addition, to preserve biodiversity, some wetlands will be upgraded, semi-buried refuges for overwintering amphibians will be dug, and pollinating insect ripaties and bat nest boxes will be installed.

This project is co-funded by the Call for Proposals “Biodiversity and Climate” (BioClima) implemented by Regione Lombardia and supported by Fondazione Cariplo. Bioclima, created under the LIFE MANAGEMENT 2020 project, aims to create public-private financing models to catalyze investment in biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation projects in Lombardy’s forests and protected areas.

Boschi dell’Oglio Nord border the homonimous river. They are a green cover popular with bird-watchers. We will preserve their biodiversity and make them more resilient.
