La fauna selvatica non dovrebbe forse essere patrimonio nazionale?

(Corriere del Ticino 22.10.2019) Nel 1800 sono scomparse in Svizzera diverse specie, sterminate poiché ritenute pericolose o semplicemente poiché l’uomo ha sottratto loro lo spazio vitale: nel 1871 in Ticino è stato ucciso l’ultimo lupo, nel 1894 in Vallese l’ultima lince, nel 1904 in Grigioni l’ultimo orso. Nel 1985 si è estinto il gipeto barbuto, …
