Rome, May 17 - Some 161 animal species and 194
plant specimens risk extinction in Italy, according to a new
study released Friday.
The report was by the environment ministry and the National
Federation of Parks (Federparchi) as part of a wider project
championed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature
(IUCN), which draws up "red lists" of species in danger.
Amongst those are various species of lake and river fish,
amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals and sea fish, as well as
flora, the environmental ministry said.
"The geographic, climatic, and historical characteristics
of Italy have permitted the instatement and permanence of a
variegated and rich biodiversity over time," said Giampiero
Sammuri, president of Federparchi.
"We have the responsibility of monitoring and safeguarding
this natural capital from the many threats it comes up against".
