CONCRETE CONSERVATION ACTIONS-C1

Restoration of 10 pools (cutini)

Partner responsible for the action: Azienda Agricola Montenero

Target species:Italian Tree Frog, Italian Newt, Italian Crested Newt

“Cutini” are pools of water that were used in the past to provide drinking water for farm animals and to irrigate the small vegetable gardens in the Karst valleys. The pools of water in the project area are the only sites in the Gargano where the Italian Tree Frog, Italian Newt and the Italian Crested Newt can be found.

The action foresees the restoration of the hydraulic and structural conditions necessary for the collection of rainwater, in addition to creating suitable ramps for fauna.

The  pools to be restored are on the property of the Azienda Agricola Montenero. After their restoration, they will once again be used for the collection of drinking water for fauna (both domestic and wild). This activity is wholly compatible with the conservation of project target  amphibian species and indispensible for the maintenance of the pools.

The action responds to the following threats: 1,4, 5, 7

Expected results:

 The restoration of 10 pools in order to make the establishment of 10 new colonies of amphibians and reptiles (Italian Tree Frog, Italian Newt, Italian Crested Newt) possible. This also has the aim of reducing the risk of inbreeding.
