Rome, May 15 - As many as 175 species and 10
natural habitats have disappeared from Italy's landscape,
according to a study released Wednesday by the World Wildlife
Fund.
The figures, drawn from studies by the international
organization, come just days before Sunday's WWF Oasis Day 2013
when it throws open its doors across the peninsula to raise
awareness of Italy's biodiversity.
All areas managed by WWF around the country will be open
free of charge, while it mounts a fundraising campaign.
There are more than 100 Oasis sites across the WWF network
in Italy, comprising more than 30,000 hectares of land.
The organization says the Oasis sites have become one of
its main tools for protecting biodiversity and achieving
sustainable development.
Such work is critical, according to studies by the WWF
which have shown that habitat and natural species are under
attack by everything from climate change to habitat destruction.
The recent WWF study found numerous species of fish and
birds have disappeared in Italy.
