Help Track Alpine Biodiversity!
After a successful pilot in 2015 the Alpenverein is now rolling out its project – Vielfalt bewegt! Alpenverein to all its members. The main idea is to gather observations of 17 key species above the tree-line in Austria. Information on the web is currently only available in German, see here. A translation into English is under preparation and should be available here by Spring 2016. Meanwhile, you can obtain information from the project leader, Birgit Kantner, (in English or German), or from Tony Cooper. Click here for Environment and Nature information.
