Deers from the rooms of Museo del Cervo at the Mesola Castle

Thanks to Delta Web, which has developed an integrated system including a high resolution camera,

it is possible to admire “in real time” deers from the rooms of Museo del Cervo at the Mesola Castle.

Indeed, Delta Web has recently completed a video recording system that allows scholars and visitors to observe

“remotely” the life of these fine ungulates through a monitor, connected to the reserve, from the lavish rooms of

the Castle.

Nature Festival 2017

Nature Festival Festival della Natura

The Nature Festival 2017 represents a new initiative aimed at territorial enhancement with particular focus on the environment and typical products of a specific area such as the Po Delta. It consists of a series of events that will be held in the most significant places of the municipalities of Codigoro, Mesola and Goro. The initiatives will cover several themes, ranging from birdwatching to cyclotourism, art, history and culture to gastronomy.

Festival della Natura programma

 

BIRDWATCHING

Delta Park is one of the most important wetlands in Europe and the largest in Italy, and welcomes biodiversity elements that make it a paradise for naturalists, biologists, tourists and birdwatchers. It is through birdwatching that it is possible to know the peculiarities of the territory to tourists from all over Europe.
The Delta del Po gives hospitality to varied bird species that find the perfect refuge in this fascinating area. Delta’s fauna is one of the richest in Southern Europe, and has nothing to envy in the renowned European parks. In addition to the tens of thousands of species of Anatidi even more rare, we remember the Limicoli of almost all species, the Ardeids and the Rallidi. We also remember, with a few hundred nesting pairs, the Avocetta and the beautiful Knight of Italy, whose typical settlement is in a small area near the church of Volano and Valle Bertuzzi, as well as Volpoche, Pittima Reale and some sightings of Sandwich Tern. Let us not forget that for some time I have also returned to nest the rare Spatole, after centuries fleeing from Eastern Europe. For this reason, birdwatching activity, or bird watching in their natural habitat, is increasingly appreciated and practiced in recent years. The most seasoned and recommended seasons to carry out this activity are spring and autumn; armed with binoculars, recognition guides and sportswear, Birdwatchers will find the Po Delta a perfect location for their sightings.
