Set off with us to discover the local fauna

The environmental diversity of Bologna and its territory makes possible the presence of many varieties of animal species, such as deer and wolves in mountainous areas, bats in the caves and grottos of the Apennine parks, but also storks, turtles and fireflies in flatter areas.

Meeting them can provide great excitement.
Set off with us to follow the tracks of these animals and admire them in their natural habitat.
