Sondrio Film Festival

The Sondrio Film Festival, the International exhibition on protected areas documentary take place from the 13th to the 26th of  November 2017 in Sondrio.
The event aims at raising awareness on nature conservation and protection, valorising environmental education activities and promoting nature documentaries.



This book on wildlife crimes by Heinrich Haller represents a trans-border study reaching from the Swiss National Park over to Italy and Austria. A study of this type has never been published in such a way. It is not only about refurbishing history but also about the analysis of present day cases shedding light on dark activities. An exceptional case of the illegal trade of Shahtoosh scarfs in St. Moritz leads to searching for clues as far as Tibet and establishes a link with the dramatic situation of wildlife crimes in many countries on a global scale.

The goal of this study is to provide a mostly quantitative refurbishment of wildlife crimes in the Raethian border triangle. The issue of the impacts of the illegal hunting of wildlife populations remains in the foreground.

The collected information serves to explain the phenomenon of wildlife crimes and to show ways of improving the situation. Literature regarding wildlife crimes is very widespread in the Alps, concentrating mostly on cultural-historic aspects. Thus, the present publication provides a new perspective.

The first edition was published in 2016 in German - since February 2017, an Italian version is  also available.


The International Conference that took place on the 16th-18th of May in Sölk, Sölktäler Nature Park (Styria, Austria) on "The Wolf in the alpine cultural landscape – chances and challenges" has gathered about 100 of participants. There has been some interesting debate and the subject was actively discussed in the presence of Marianne Elmi, Deputy Secretary General of the Alpine Convention.

The event was co-organised by SÖLKTÄLER NATURE PARK and ALPARC.


On the occasion of the Day of the Alpine Convention, we invite you to the opening of photography exhibition "Obiettivo fauna nel parco naturale delle Prealpi Giulie" on Friday, May 26th 2017 at 18h at the Slovene Alpine Museum in Mojstrana (SI). The exhibition will present the work of Paolo Da Pozzo and Gabriele Bano.


The WeWild project (2016-2018) got well under way with the first workshop which was organised in Vorarlberg in March 2017. 16 stakeholders from six Alpine countries attended the two-day event, thereby underlining the interest in a common, Alpine-wide communication strategy regarding the behaviour of snow sports participants.

The fruitful workshop discussions helped the working group to identify the major needs regarding such a joint strategy and to reveal potential risks. It also allowed for the collection of ideas for objectives, actions and tools. Valuable input came from the stakeholder presentations on information campaigns and from Nils Westerfeld’s presentation on factors influencing eco-friendly behaviour from outdoor sports participants.

By now and based on these workshop results, ALPARC has started working on a joint communication strategy that will also frame the creation of joint communication tools. ALPARC will launch a joint Alps-wide initiative that will bring together protected areas as well as other key players and interested partners. The initiative’s mission is to educate and raise awareness of outdoor recreationists in the Alps using international cooperation, exchange and communication. Based on a positive, non-regulatory attitude, its aim is to gain momentum, increase visibility of existing campaigns and contribute to eco-friendly behaviour in snow and outdoor sports. The initiative will have its own identity and will be promoted via a website and a video clip which will be released in 2018. Our members, protected areas and other partners will be given the opportunity to join the initiative by signing a common mission statement.

The upcoming milestones in 2017 are the finalisation of the communication strategy, the creation of the graphical identity, video and website as well as the second WeWild workshop to be held in November 2017 in Aree Protette dell’Ossola (IT).

Interested protected areas and other organisations are openly invited to join our initiative and contribute to its development.

We are pleased to announce that the registration is now open for the international Conference and Exhibition: "The Wolf in the Alpine cultural landscape -  chances and challenges". 

The conference will take place from the 16th to the 18th of May 2017 in Sölk, Sölktäler Nature Park (Styria – Austria).

The first workshop of the WeWild project took place in Vorarlberg (Austria) last week, on March 23rd and 24th 2017. Attended by 18 participants from six countries, it offered two intense and productive days of exchange and brain-storming. The aim was to exchange on experiences of information and communication campaigns regarding wildlife disturbance in winter and to develop elements for a joint initiative of Alpine protected areas. The exchange highlighted valuable information and ideas for such common initiative.

The participants worked in groups to identify the main needs of a transnational communication strategy and discussed the design of first common tools in a session of round-tables. These tools, a website, a video-clip and a graphical identity will be developed and made available to all ALPARC members by January 2018.

The workshop included a short field trip, organized by the hosting Nagelfluhkette nature park, during which we saw and discussed different on-site information panels used on the Austrian and German sides of the border. The park staff explained their campaign “Your space of freedom – my living space”, which groups both German and Austrian information campaigns. Since 2008, the nature park brings together the southern part of Allgäu region in Germany and the region Bregenzerwald in Austria; it was the first trans-border nature park between the two countries. Alongside agriculture, tourism is one of the main economic activities, with 2,5 million overnight stays each year.

Nach den leichten Sommerlektüren am Strand oder auf der Wiese haben wir jetzt einige anspruchsvollere Buchtipps  für den Herbst :

 „Wilderei im rhätischen Dreiländereck – Grenzüberschreitende Recherchen mit einer Spurensuche bis nach Tibet“

Im Dreiländereck Schweiz–Italien–Österreich, inmitten der Alpen, hat die Wilderei Tradition. Ausgehend vom Schweizerischen Nationalpark im Engadin wird die illegale Jagd grenzübergreifend dokumentiert und interpretiert. Nachforschungen im Zusammenhang mit illegalem Handel von Shahtoosh-Schals in St. Moritz führten bis nach Tibet.
Die Studie fokussiert auf die vergangenen 100 Jahre, wobei zeitgenössische Aktivitäten, ihre Auswirkungen auf Wildtiere und Maßnahmen gegen die frevlerischen Übergriffe besondere Berücksichtigung finden. Wilderer gehören nicht nur ins Reich der Heimatliteratur, sondern sind in gewissen Gebieten nach wie vor Teil der jagdlichen Realität sowie ein bedeutender Risikofaktor für den Naturschutz.
Dieses Buch (304 S.) stammt aus der Feder von Heinrich Haller, dem Direktor des Schweizerischen Nationalparks. Es erscheint im Oktober in deutscher Sprache und 2017 auf Italienisch. Eine Präsentation des Buches ist am 12. Oktober 2016 um 20.30 Uhr in Zernez/CH geplant.
