WWF is a global organization acting locally through a network of family offices to halt the accelerating destruction of the natural world.
Valle Averto is a protected area of 4.2 km² of water and 0.13 km² of land. Valle Averto is part of a bigger area protected within the Ramsar Convention. The Italian World Wide Fund for Nature owns this area, according to an agreement with the Italian government. The environment is rich in endemic flora and fauna and holds great importance for rural fisheries.

Today it is a natural part of the lagoon system as well as a refuge for many protected and endemic species.
