Due to its geographical location the WWF Oasis of Orbetello is home to thousands of birds, especially in winter.

The Orbetello lagoon is characterised by three main habitats: Mediterranean maquis dominated by mastic, phillireas, myrtle and strawberry trees; dune vegetation including rushy wheat grass, othanthus maritimus, European beachgrass, medicago marina, sea hollyand sea daffodil; and by a lagoon area with a large carpet of clasping leaved sea purslane.

Within this, you can see flamingos, common stilts, great egrets, grey herons, ospreys, northern shovelers, Eurasian spoonbills and pied avocets. The Oasis is also the only breeding site of the common tern and little tern along the Tyrrhenian coast.

The oasis has three walking trails, one of which can be accompanied by a guided tour upon request any time of the year.
