Il Capriolo Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and Wildlife Area


Via Capanna, 23
43038 Sala Baganza (PR)

Municipality: Sala Baganza Region: Emilia-Romagna

The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is a brand new structure which is still expanding. It is situated in a forest in a panoramic position with respect to Casino dei Boschi, at the foot of Mt. Castione (316m above sea-level). The structure is particularly suitable to house deer in trouble, but is also equipped for Canids, mustelids, hedgehogs, and small mammals in general. It also houses a considerable number of Hermann's tortoises, for which the Park is developing a reintroduction project.
Since last year, the Rehabilitation Center has been working in collaboration with the Wildlife Resource Service of the Province of Parma.
The only aim of the Center is to reintroduce the animals into their natural environment. For this reason, it has been integrated with a project for the creation of the Wildlife Area "Il Capriolo", situated next to the Rehabilitation Center: a clearing surrounded by broadleaf tree forests and covering 4 ha where the animals, in particular deer, are moved before being completely freed.
Besides reintroduction purposes, the Wildlife Area has also study, research, and didactic purposes.

Opening times: From March to July and in September and October from 4.00 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.
