Italy has several national parks to help preserve these endangered animals. More endangered/rare animals include the Peregrine Falcon, a goat type animal called a chamois and the golden eagle. in the mountains and forests but they're habitat is being destroyed from forestry to make room for hotels and such.


     There is a wide abundance of birds in Italy, over 150 species! In Tuscany birds such as the imperial hawk, the royal seagull, the Corsican seagull, and the Pellegrino Hawk. Birds that migrate find it hard to cross the Mediterranean Sea, instead they go to the island of Calabria and from there they go to Africa. Most birds usually come back to the Italian mainland in the spring.
