Measures to protect the Fratino nesting
The conservation actions and census of the nesting Fratino (Charadrius alexandrinus) are particularly important, since, this little bird is an established biological indicator on the health of the environment of dunes.
In fact, every year the WWF is organizing the "Fratino day", a day dedicated to monitoring of this species with the help of volunteers and ornithologists. From this we derive useful monitoring information to plan projects for the conservation of residues dune environments.
Inside the reserve of Punta Aderci this has particular relevance as the Fratino was chosen as a symbol of the Reserve.
