... Great new addition for my Nature Parks collection...Thanks a lot Gian Luca!!
The Pesio valley is lush and green, covered by a dense forest that goes all the way up to the feet of the Marguareisn, the Tanaro valley side of the park, on the other hand, is very dry.
The park supports a very rich and varied fauna, that includes a large presence of ungulates (chamois, deer, roe deer, wild boars).
The chamois is a goat-antelope species native to mountains in Europe, including the Carpathian Mountains of Romania, the Pyrenees, the European Alps, the Tatra Mountains, the Balkans, parts of Turkey, and the Caucasus. Some subspecies of chamois are strictly protected in the EU under the European Habitats Directive.
