NATURAMA Lecture: Snow Hares in Distress
The Alpine snow hare, found in Graubünden, is a subspecies of the snow hare. It lives exclusively in the Alps, at altitudes of over 1300 m above sea level.M. The hare, on the other hand, usually inhabits habitats below 1600 m above sea level.M. Despite the conceivable overlap, the two hare species usually occur spatially separated. In the Alps, however, the temperature differences when the altitude changes allow the Alpine snow hare and the hare to live together. In the canton of Graubünden, it is now becoming apparent that the snow hare may be displaced by the hare to higher altitudes. How much is the snow hare threatened? Stéphanie Schai-Braun explains current research projects and their findings on the competition between the two hare species. | The Auditorium Schlossstall of the Swiss National Park is located directly next to the castle. 10 minutes from the train station.
