Updated the Reporting Map

Sicily is the main highlight of the latest reports of Pinna nobilis individuals received from citizens through the dedicated page on this site. In recent weeks, the cartographers of ARPAL, the Regional Agency for Environmental Protection of Liguria, which also leads Life Pinna, have updated the database that allows viewing the GPS coordinates entered by citizens on the map. Most of the reports sent in recent months come from Sicily, particularly from the pristine seabeds of Ustica, but also from the Gulf of Catania and the Trapani area, near Marsala. Insular Italy, this time Sardinia, is also represented with a report from the Island of Asinara, while from the mainland reports have been registered from the Livorno area and from a marine reserve on the Slovenian coast. We remind you that, given the need to protect the endangered species, a margin of approximation has been maintained that does not allow the precise identification of the reported points. Having received a good number of reports during the colder months of the year, we are confident that many more will arrive with the bathing season. Spread the word!
