Camping Sass Dlacia and Ütia de Börz, two access points to the Dolomites' natural parks

The Alpine Hotel Ütia de Börz and Camping Sass Dlacia are two very different establishments, but both are located at the entrance to two extraordinary natural parks: the Fanes-Sennes-Braies Natural Park and the Puez-Odle Natural Park. But what is a natural park, and who protects the flora and fauna of these specific areas?

What Are Natural Parks?

Natural parks are oases of beauty and biodiversity, protected lands and waters managed primarily for the purpose of preserving the natural environment for future generations. These areas encompass a variety of breathtaking landscapes, including imposing mountain ranges, majestic forests, crystal-clear waters, and much more. Within them, nature takes center stage, providing a sanctuary for unique and often rare animal and plant species.

Who and Why Protects These Areas?

The designation of an area as a natural park is the result of a process that involves governments, scientists, local communities, and environmental organizations:

  1. The Government: Often, the local or national government is responsible for establishing and managing these parks, seeking to balance conservation with the public use of natural resources. Their mission is to preserve these natural treasures for future generations.

  2. Scientists and Experts: Scientists contribute with in-depth research to better understand the biodiversity and ecosystems of the area. These studies are crucial for defining conservation strategies.

  3. Local Communities and Stakeholders: Nearby communities and stakeholders actively participate in setting the park's rules. This involvement helps ensure the sustainable management of natural resources and promotes local economic development through sustainable tourism.

  4. Environmental Organizations: These organizations work tirelessly to promote and protect the natural parks. They advocate for the enforcement of laws and conservation policies and help strengthen environmental awareness.

More Things to Know About Natural Parks:

  1. Biological Diversity: Within the parks, you'll find a rich variety of animal and plant species, some of which are rare or endangered. These parks are like archives of wildlife, preserving and protecting the biodiversity of our planet.

  2. Environmental Education: The parks offer educational programs for visitors. These programs not only allow you to discover the natural beauty of the area but also understand the importance of conservation and how everyone can contribute to preserving these unique habitats.

  3. Outdoor Recreation: Hiking, biking, climbing, canoeing, and many other activities are possible in the parks. These areas provide extraordinary opportunities for outdoor adventures and immersion in pristine nature.

  4. Monitoring and Active Conservation: Park authorities constantly monitor the ecosystem and take measures to protect flora and fauna. This can include managing invasive species, preventing forest fires, and rehabilitating damaged habitats.

  5. Sustainable Tourism: Tourism in the parks contributes sustainably to the local economy, creating an additional incentive for conservation. Visiting these areas means supporting their preservation.

  6. Ethical Rules: Respecting the wildlife and flora, leaving no waste, and maintaining silence in sensitive areas are fundamental behaviors. These rules help ensure that the areas remain pristine and accessible for future generations. 

Natural parks are where nature preservation and sustainability converge. Camping Sass Dlacia and Ütia de Börz invite you to discover this extraordinary harmony in the Dolomites, where every step towards beauty is also a step towards a more sustainable future.
