Ponds and Ecological Corridors for Amphibians and Birds

Where in Italy Riserva Naturale Speciale della Lanca di Santa Marta e della Confluenza del Banna
Lanca di Santa Marta, situated upstream the confluence between the rivers Po and Banna, is an environment rich in amphibians and aquatic birds. The Reserve stretches up to the confluence of the stream Banna into the river Po: the stream, together with its several and small affluents, drains the rainwater of a large pre-hill area in the south-east, known as “Pianalto di Poirino”. The stream Banna is characterized by summer minimum flows and floods which are sometimes violent in the most rainy seasons. In the surrounding countryside, intensely cultivated, the tree rows running along the course of the stream Banna work as ecological corridors linking the Reserve to environments rich in fauna, like Parco di Villastellone. The Reserve covers an area of 164 hectares.
