About the Alpine Eagle Foundation

From eagle to mountain

In addition to the original project, which focused on reintroducing the golden eagle into its natural habitat, broader objectives are to be pursued, aimed at raising awareness, mobilising support and taking action on behalf of the entire Alpine massif and the life it shelters.
The eagle has been chosen by the Foundation to symbolise influential action on behalf of the entire ecosystem. Majestic yet threatened, it is the emblem of an approach that targets the entire surrounding Alpine environment. With its outstretched wings, it appears to embrace the landscape over which it soars, and that the Foundation bearing its name intends to protect.

The Alps

A commitment to making a mountain of difference

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.


A passionate team of individuals

The Alpine Eagle Foundation was founded by Chopard Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele along with experts and devotees of the Alps such as falconer Jacques-Olivier Travers (creator of Aigles du Léman) and Ronald Menzel (Managing Director of Freedom Conservation).
