WWF explores the frontiers of conservation: visit to the newly established Ninasco Farm
Last Thursday, Francesco Marcone and Stefano Picchi of WWF paid a special visit to the Ninasco Farm, a fledgling enterprise that embraces not only agriculture but also a private coastal natural area, located between Tuscany and Latium border. The farm, with aspirations to integrate into the network of Italian private natural areas developed through WWF’s ENPLC and ELCN projects, is emerging as an excellent example of commitment to sustainability and environmental conservation.
The facility, located a few hundred meters from the sea and with an extension of about 5 hectares reaching the coastal dune and the Special Area of Conservation (SAC) of Tombolo del Paglieto Grande, offers an idyllic setting for environmental conservation initiatives. The visit highlighted the strong link between the Ninasco Farm and the surrounding nature, emphasizing the opportunities and natural values present.
In collaboration with the owner, Francesco Gentile, a shared vision emerged: to preserve the local ecosystem and actively promote biodiversity. The farm thus becomes a tangible example of how private enterprise can effectively integrate into the environmental conservation strategies outlined by WWF.
In addition, Ninasco Farm is planning an ambitious project: the creation of a multimedia educational farm and the sustainable enhancement of a nature trail on private land within the Natura 2000 network. This project, submitted in 2022 to LazioINNOVA, received significant recognition in the form of regional grant funding as the best cultural and creative startup in 2023. This initiative further demonstrates Ninasco Farm’s commitment and creativity in the field of sustainability and biodiversity promotion.
