The Flora and Fauna of The Vanoise National Park

If you look up to the side of the mountains not touched by strings of ski lifts and leaveyour gaze long enough on a rock, quite often, that rock will morph into a living,breathing mountain goat. This is one of the jobs of the Vanoise National Park Guards; spotting the extremely well camouflaged animals clinging to the sides of the slopesas part of their ongoing conservation work.Spend a little time with these guards andyou realise how in tune they are with thesurrounding flora and fauna, spotting thetwitches of an animal far, far away from their viewing point.
