Alpine ibex, red deer, snow hare: the wild animals in Graubünden often have a hard time finding food in winter. In order not to endanger their survival, winter sports enthusiasts and nature lovers should pay attention to the wildlife rest zones and protected areas, especially when there is ice and snow.

Do not Disturb

Animals need a lot of energy and endurance to forage in winter, for example to rummage for twigs and buds under the snow cover. Even more energy is needed to escape when people cross the territorial boundaries. In order to ensure as much peace and quiet as possible for the animals, we ask you:

  • Respect wildlife rest zones and protected areas.
  • Stay on the paths.
  • Avoid forest edges and snow-free areas.
  • Keep dogs on a leash.
