11:05 pm

a 4th zone in which nature is left to itself then there is a maintenance down where alpine meadows are cultivated and tourism is encouraged. several information centers explain the park's flora and fauna one of them in the clouds above house is the perfect starting point for a walk to the deer feeding station. when the rangers replenish the food supply up to 60 red deer venture out from the shelter of the trees to feet of the dead lights of visitors. at all that's a 65 but the golden eagles are a bit shyer than the deer we're still waiting. so. they said. no need to separate tourism and conservation they go very well together
11:07 pm
you see tom koenig's a 600000 people visit some both of them use and the lake water is so clean you can drink it because only electric boats are allowed on the lake you have to compromise a little but what do you do here apart from watching eagles. monitoring the golden eagles there's only one thing that it's not a 9 time an important part of our job is looking after tourists we offer guided tours every day and of course we rangers are often out somewhere in the park we have 250 kilometers of trials in the national park from barrier free to steep. and we check them on a regular basis to make sure they're in order that sound jump to the top. that's enough talking for the moment let's see if our luck with the eagles has improved a little right in the middle want to see. he's looking this way and there really is one. is there. and it gets
11:08 pm
