Our Commitment

Preserving the Alps

A clear and explicit goal

Twelve hundred kilometres long, 280 kilometres wide, with a combined 190,000 km² area spread across six countries, this priceless breeding ground for plant and animal species is an authentic treasure. Europe’s ‘water tower’ is under threat from a wide variety of stressors. The Alpine Eagle Foundation has set itself the goal of preserving this mountain range in all its aspects: as a natural environment, a place of life and traditions, a natural habitat for wild and domesticated species, a home to vital glaciers and countless lakes, and the source of great rivers such as the Rhône, the Rhine and the Po.
