Italy: ecoregional protected areas and wildfire hotspots map


Original title: Ecoregional protected areas and wildfire risk hotspots

This map identifies the 17 ecoregional protected areas in Italy that are particularly vulnerable to wildfire risk, also known as wildfire hotspots.

Biodiversity is not evenly spread across the Earth but follows complex patterns determined by climate, geology and the evolutionary history of the planet. These patterns are called ecoregions. WWF identified the 200 most valuable and sometimes vulnerable ecoregions in the world which best represent the breadth of biodiversity and ecological processes, recognizing the fact that unique manifestations of nature are also found in temperate and boreal regions, in deserts and mountain chains. Without active conservation work, there is a risk biodiversity in these very special areas will be lost forever.
