Le Bine Oasis

WWF Le Bine Oasis covers an area of 237 acres. It was born following a change of the course of the Oglio River and its name was inspired by the typical farmhouse locally known as “bina”, which means “sheltered stilt house”.

The cultivated area inside the oasis is mainly dedicated to crops and arboretums. The most important part is undoubtedly the horseshoe-shaped marshland made of thick reeds and populated by several species of water birds. Reptiles and amphibians are present as well, like the Italian agile frog (Lataste’s frog) – an autochthonous species of the Po Rivel Valley and a few other places, as well as a true symbol of this reserve. The mammals mostly include Etruscan shrews and badgers.

The waters of the reserve are full of white and yellow water lilies (Nymphaea alba, and Nuphar lutea), and the common reed (Phragmites australis); in the woods, there are several specimens of white willows (Salix alba), black alders (Alnus glutinosa), black and white poplars (Populus nigra and Populus alba), buckthorns (Rhamnus frangula), European spindles (Euonymus europaeus), and false indigo bushes (Amorpha fruticosa).
