Golena di Panarella Oasis is in the town of Papozze, in the province of Rovigo. The management of this natural area, the actual gateway to the Veneto Regional Park, is entrusted to the WWF on behalf of the Municipality.
In the past, the intense human activity around the bend of the Po River was a disturbance for the vegetation and the animals, which fortunately repopulated this area when such annoyance stopped.
Paths were then added to this area, specifically designed for visitors eager to discover the rich local flora and fauna. When visiting these places, a local professional guide is always recommended, in order to make the most of every single exploration.
Covering more than 123 acres (25 managed by the WWF), this floodplain is one of the largest in the lower stretch of the Po River.

The strong biodiversity is due to several different environments: deep ponds, wet meadows, and dry areas. There is a flooded hygrophilic forest of Salix spp., along with Quercus robur, Populus alba, Fraxinus spp., and Ulmus spp.

Herbaceous species such as Juncus articolatus, Typhoides arundinacea, Paspalum paspalodes, Trifolium repens, Agrostis stolonifera, Epilobium hirsutum, and shrubs of Salix alba have been found in the grassy areas.

The marshy areas, including two large basins of shallow water, feature pioneer vegetations in the mud such as Paspalum paspalodes, Anagallis aquatica, Ranunculus Sceleratus, Juncus articolatus, Juncus bufanius, Lindernia anagallidea.
Aquatic vegetation includes Potamogeton nodaus, Potamogetus crispus, Paspalum paspadoles, Eleocharis palustris, Schoenoplectus triqueter, Scoenoplectus tabernaemontani, and Mentha pulegium.

The fauna is represented by several nesting, wintering and migratory bird species. Among the reeds, there are reed and great reed warblers, bearded reedlings, common reed buntings, little bitterns, water rails, and purple herons.

In the older wood, there are various species of red-throated wrynecks, European goldfinches, greenfinches, serins, African stonechats, red-backed shrikes, and Northern lapwings (in winter).

The bee-eater population is also very abundant every year. Among diurnal birds of prey, there are buzzards, marsh harriers, and hen harriers (in the cold season).
