This is La Riserva Naturale del Borsacchio’s petition against recently legislated cuts that remove 78% of this protected area. Please do consider signing to ensure this piece of protected ‘Abruzzo’ remains a flourishing nature reserve. 

All signatures from this English language version of the petition will be delivered to the Riserva on the 29th January  when they will deliver the petition to the Regional government.

The Council of Ministers has issued a moratorium which suspends activity until further consideration has been evaluated when regional law infringes national law. To help this process you can now email them if you have a PEC email address to submit your disapproval of this cut.  As the Reserve says “the more the merrier!”

There is an easy template for this, so it is just a question of adding your name, address and date and emailing it. 

Simply click through to the Reserve’s page for instructions and the template.
