Be Part of the Mountain

By acting responsibly, you help wildlife to survive.
You become part of the mountain.

01

Avoid

quiet zones


Animals need their comfort zones and refuges. Therefore, respect protected areas and quiet zones and do not enter marked breeding areas.

Consider these zones while choosing and planning your tour.

02

Stay on

track


Stay on marked paths, recommendedroutes and existing tracks, so that animals can get used to human presence, especially in the forest and along forest edges.

Do not track animals.

03

Be

discreet


Avoid disturbance by behaving and speaking quietly. Avoid setting out in early morning or evening hours. When you see or hear animals, stop and wait to let them escape. Observe them from a distance.

If you have a dog, keep it on a leash, or better, leave your best friend at home for your activities.

04

Know, evaluate
and reduce your

impact


Your impact on wildlife depends on weather and environmental conditions, species and period of the year.

Get the necessary information and evaluate your potential impact on vulnerable species.See tools below.
