Discovering the fire salamander


As part of our project about biodiversity, we signal an interesting excursion that will be held a few kilometers from Lugano, in Rivera-Bironico.

Saturday, 9th of April at 2 pm takes place the marvellous excursion to discover the fire salamander. They were elected as the “amphibious of the year” by Karch (center of coordination for the protection of amphibians and reptiles of Switzerland) in 2016. A professional guide will present you its habitats and you will learn about its reproduction possibilities and the threats of salamander daily life.

The fire salamander lives in the purest places: when you are lucky you can also observe them on the path from Parco San Marco to Cima di Porlezza?
