Flims Laax Falera with its gorges, forests, lakes and mountains is a natural wonder - and because many tourists want to experience and discover this beauty, it is also an important economic factor. It is therefore all the more important not only to use nature, but also to protect it. Ranger services play a crucial role in public relations and nature conservation. They sensitize visitors to the special features of nature, inform them about the flora and fauna worthy of protection and uncover any abuses. They are the voice of nature, so to speak.
Since 2016, the ranger services have been in action in the Ruinaulta as well as on the Segnesböden. In the course of the planned UNESCO development of the Tectonic Arena Sardona, the ranger service is to be professionalized and expanded. The rangers commissioned by the Rhine Gorge-Ruinaulta Association provide their active services during the summer months. Among other things, they inform and sensitize the stakeholders about important topics concerning flora and fauna. The ranger services are subject to the superior supervision of the association "Die Rheinschlucht - Ruinaulta". The association is therefore the responsible contact and signs the corresponding agreement.
Mastercard® Europe SA supported the Greenstyle Foundation with CHF 30,000 in 2021. Specifically, the contribution will be used in 2022 to recruit, train, equip professional rangers to protect the habitat of animal and plant species around the destination Flims Laax Falera (incl. the Rhine Gorge-Ruinaulta and the Segnesböden- UNESCO Tectonic Arena Sardona).
