Planta-Wildenberg Castle

Since 1995, wolves have been spreading in Switzerland and are increasingly colonizing the Engadine. On the one hand, this still largely unknown animal species often arouses uncertainty among the population. Especially for small livestock farming, it can decisively change the framework conditions. On the other hand, wolves occupy their original place in the ecosystem and can thus have a positive effect on natural processes. How do we humans succeed in ensuring the long-term protection of the animal species within the current legal framework and allowing positive effects, but also in reducing conflicts with humans to a tolerable level? Arno Puorger, Head of the Large Carnivores Department at the Office for Hunting and Fisheries, reports on current developments and practical findings on the way to living together with wolves. | The Schlossstall Auditorium of the Swiss National Park is located right next to the castle. 10 minutes from the train station.
