The locks open! Four ibex leave the transport boxes. After being absent for more than 250 years, a wild species returns to its original habitat. What started on June 16, 1969 in Kals a.Gr. on the hunters’ initiative, has — with about 1,200 animals — now become one of the largest populations of Alpine ibex in the Eastern Alps - the ibex in the Hohe Tauern. This year's special exhibition is dedicated to the disappearance and return of the Alpine ibex as well as to biology in general and current research in Hohe Tauern National Park.
Numerous display boards and exhibits on 2 floors in the Matrei National Park House invite you to get to know this striking alpine animal better.
