Rules of conduct around game protection zones

Rules of conduct around game protection zones

Bildrechte David Müller

Wildlife protection zones are of greatest importance as they provide wild animals with undisturbed habitats. Those areas in the Canton of Grisons are protected mainly during the winter months. Trails around the protection zones are marked with red and yellow posts: the red ones mark the side of the trail that is next to the protected area, while the yellow posts mark the "public hiking" side. Please always observe those signals and thus allowing humans and wildlife to co-exist peacefully.


Winter is the hardest time of year for wild animals. Snow, cold weather and lack of food mean they need to do all they can to save energy. When black grouse, chamois, etc. are disturbed by humans during their winter resting period, they use up a lot of energy fleeing – and this is energy they need in order to survive. If disturbed repeatedly, they lose too much energy and may fall ill or even die.

The four most important rules

Observe wildlife rest zones and wildlife reserves so that the game is not unnecessarily disturbed.

  • Stay on the trails or marked routes, so the game gets used to people.
  • Avoid forest edges and snow-free areas, as these are the animals' favorite places.
  • Keep your dogs on a leash, especially in the woods. Game fears free-roaming dogs and wastes energy unnecessarily.

The forest is large enough to provide recreation and retreat for humans and animals.

We wish you much joy in nature!
