Campania hosts a wealth of beautiful landscapes and wild natural areas, some of which deserve special treatments in order to preserve the environment with its flora and fauna. Around a quarter of the region's surface has been declared protected area, whether parks, nature reserves or oases, or marine reserves. Most important are the two National Parks: the one of Vesuvius, between Naples and the Sorrento Peninsula, and the one of Cilento and Vallo di Diano, in the southern part of Campania. Regional Parks are more, spread through the whole region, one of which is of Lattari Mountains, part of Sorrento Peninsula and Amalfi Coast, that includes the Ferriere Valley Natural Reserve in Scala. Among the few Marine Protected Areas we should mention the Kingdom of Neptune, surrounding Ischia, Procida and Vivara islands, and Punta Campanella, around the edge of Sorrento Peninsula, which includes the Natural Area Ieranto Bay.
