Palude La Vela WWF Oasis

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian)

This protected area covers about 17 acres and is located in the second bay of Mar Piccolo, 4-5 miles from Taranto – between the promontory known as “Il Fronte” and the end of Capo D’Ayala canal. The Oasis includes a brackish marshy area and the “Fucarino” pine forest, made of Aleppo pines (Pinus halepensis) planted about half a century ago, for military purposes.

The marsh is an ideal environment for nesting and migratory bird species. However, it is currently exposed to rapid deterioration due to its proximity to the brackish waters.
The typical vegetation is that of the halophilic type, featuring species adapted to brackish environments and well-adjusted to the tides of Mar Piccolo.
