They glide... a few wing beats, they slip between the trees to complete their flight on a hilltop. The birds. What do you think, how do birds feel when they see the Alps, drifting by under their wings during their migration in spring and autumn?
Do you know how birds see forests, mountains or landscapes? Do you know a little place where the bearded vulture returns every year? Are you curious and do you want to discover the Alps?
Fly with us on your area and take the opportunity to get the knowledge about the alpine protected areas with our tool ViViAlp!
The tool ViViAlp, a virtual tour (in 3D) of the alpine protected areas, continues its development. After 4 years of success in nearly two dozen information centres across the 6 alpine countries and as well online with the version Google Earth , it will be soon possible to find new alpine protected areas and new 'points of interest' (POI).
For example, the Natural Park Nagelfluhkette , new German partner of the project, will install a ViViAlp station in its visitor centre. Other partners such as the National Park Nockberge in Austria and ASTERS (Natural Reserves Haute-Savoie) in France, and as well the partners of the project ALPENCOM, in which project ViViAlp has been created, will also incorporate new points of interests.
Are you managing a alpine protected area? Do you want to be known on a international level as well? Do you have interesting and special areas in your area which nobody knows?
The update session of our tool ViViAlp is in progress until autumn, so you have still the chance to participate and join our project ViViAlp!
