Vademecum

Beauty and harmony of the naturalistic paradise you are visiting are at risk! The inattentive fruition of nature threatens the fragile balance of land, water, plants and animals. During your stay you can protect the places you have learned to love through small but significant actions.


1. Let’s leave the beach clean and, when possible, let’s help each other to collect the abandoned waste

Abandoned waste causes great damages to the marine environment, to its organisms and to our health! Taking away our own garbage when we leave the beach is a favor we do ourselves.

2. Let’s avoid using vehicles on the beach and let’s keep away from the dunes

Image

Taking away sand, pebbles and shells, even if involuntarily, can create several problems to the beach ecosystem. Before leaving remember to shake off the sand from your shoes, slippers and towels. The voluntary removal of sand, pebbles and shells is forbidden by law and punished with high fines!

3. We must not take away sand, pebbles and shells

Image

Portare via, anche involontariamente sabbia, ciottoli e conchiglie è VIETATO per legge ed è punito con multe salate!
Prima di andare via ricordiamoci di scuotere scarpe, ciabatte e teli mare per evitare la loro asportazione.

 

4. We have to remember that plant remains are part of the marine ecosystem

Image

Plant remains and other organic fragments laying on the water edge are not waste. They are part of the marine ecosystem and play an important role in protecting and preserving beaches and dunes. Dead leaves and other remains of Posidonia oceanica constitute a fundamental element and must not be removed.

5. Let’s avoid trampling on the dunes

Image

Dunes constitute a natural reserve of sedimentation for sandy shores and slow down the erosion process, granting through the spontaneous vegetation the deposit of sand, otherwise dispersed by the wind. The vegetation is essential for the life of the dune. It contributes to its consolidation and to the protection of the environments behind it. We must avoid walking on the dunes because trampling alters their natural conformation and evolution.

6. We must not collect plants, flowers and branches from the dune vegetation

Image

Plants living on the dunes and along the rocks are very important for the balance of the coastal environment, and help the formation and consolidation of the dunes themselves. Avoid damaging the plants and collecting flowers and branches.

7. When we watch and photograph the birds let’s do it in a responsible way

Image

Birds in the nest or in its vicinity are particularly susceptible to disturbance. Sometimes they even react by interrupting their nesting. Therefore it is important that they are not disturbed.

8. We should work together to protect the wetlands’ vegetal species

Image

Wetlands are one of the environments with the greatest ecological diversity, but are at the same time among those most globally threatened. They host many species of flora and fauna of great value, some of which are particularly rare and endangered. Respect these areas and do not take away any plant.

 

9. We should not leave our pets free to roam

Image

Coastal dunes and wetlands are extremely delicate ecosystems of high environmental value. Do not let your pet free to run and roam without a leash. They could disturb or threaten the species living in these environments, and damage the flora.

10. Let’s remember: wetlands are not a dump

Image

Wetlands are often used as open-air dumps, which constantly threaten the usability and functionality of this important ecosystem.
