The Fauna Oasis of Monte Leoni stretches over to three municipalities: Roccastrada, Grosseto and Campagnatico. This area hosts numerous animal species and visitors are often able to spot a wide variety of plants and flowers. Its vegetation is characterized by evergreen trees and bushes with coriaceous leaves, in addition to cork forests which are very interesting from the point of view of forest-linked studies.

This territory hosts chestnut groves and its lush undergrowth provides an excellent place for mushrooms to grow along with other plant species such as holy, ivy and broom. The Oasis is home to ample fauna. In terms of invertebrates, it hosts beetles and moths (especially the Callimorphus quadripunctarius). It is also home to typical salamander and wild cats.
