The sanctuary includes a stretch of the River Arno between the SS 439 bridge (direction Bientina) and the floodway (Scolmatore) between the latter and the SS 67 bridge. The total area covers 5372 hectares. The sanctuary also includes the Parco dei Salici, a park on the left bank of the Arno which, with an area of over 8 hectares, is the largest urban green area in Pontedera. The Italian Society for the Protection of Birds (LIPU) has been commissioned by the City of Pontedera to set up a nature tour complete with illustrated panels, mangers and artificial nests. Forty-three bird species have already been sighted in the sanctuary; some of which are typical to wet environments. The sanctuary is of great naturalistic interest in all seasons, as a wintering and reproduction area and as an ‘ecological corridor’ for migrations in the ecological network of the region. The sanctuary is a contribution to the preservation of local biodiversity
