Rules of behaviour when encountering wild animals

While nature is our recreational space, most of all it is habitat and refuge for wildlife.

While nature is our recreational space, most of all it is habitat and refuge for wildlife. The co-existence of humans and wild animals is marked by various wildlife protection zones which are strictly off limits. To avoid that your hikes and tours won't be at the expense of the wild animals, please observe the following rules of behaviour:

  • Take photos and observe animals only from a safe distance.
  • Avoid noise, smoke and other interfering smells.
  • Do not throw away trash into the nature as this causes ecological damage and may turn into death traps for animals.
  • Do not leave the marked trails; wildlife need quiet areas.
  • Respect the trailblazing and signs for wildlife protection zones (red/yellow).

Are you a dog owner? Then please be aware that dogs are regarded by wild animals as predators. That is why you always should keep your dog on the leash when walking close to the signs referring to the protection zones (red/yellow).

Hunting has a long tradition and plays an important role in the Grison culture. In our canton, 6000 to 7000 hunters have a passion for this sport. They love to tell exciting hunting stories, chat with like-minded people about their experiences and about this Grison custom. The hunting seasons - traditionally, in September and October - serve the purpose to keep the the wildlife stock stable. However, inside the marked wildlife protection zones hunting is prohibited.

Enjoy the Engadin nature!
