The wealth of fauna in a given area is proportional to the availability of nourishment and habitats, as well as to their vastness and lack of fragmentation. Despite tourism, the Ampezzo Dolomites show an outstanding wealth and diversity of fauna, mainly thanks to the low-impact, almost natural silvan-pastoral management that the Regole have practised for centuries on forest and meadow eco-systems.
Wintering areas are expansive and undisturbed and tourism is concentrated both in time and space. Hunting is limited to the areas outside the park and managed with sustainable criteria. All this leaves the fauna undisturbed during the main stages of their biological cycles and enables them to thrive even near trails and ski runs, where escape distances are reduced and enable many visitors to observe the animals.
