Post 10. Espace Faune / Wildlife Exhibition Space

This exhibition space, designed to present the fauna of the Val d’Anniviers, is housed in the former fire station of the village. The Diana d’Anniviers association, which includes a hundred hunters, supported by the town, is at the origin of this project. Each year a different theme is presented, related to nature and local fauna.

The Espace Faune is open in the summer from 8 :00 a.m. to 8 :00 p.m. and in winter from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.. The right door opens automatically.

The golden eagle, lynx, martens, badgers, marmots, deer, chamois, ermine, fox, tawny owls and the black grouse reveal their secrets. Each animal has a button that allows visitors to listen to a commentary.

The wildlife observation post, built twenty minutes from the village, down the forest road to Pramarin allows visitors to observe animals in their natural environment through a telescope.

To get to the last location, return to the Café des 2000 and follow the main road up to the house with a hipped roof on the left.

 

As you advance, look at the house on the left, whose windows have bars. This house, dating from 1882 housed the last post office located in the old village, until 1968, when the post office was relocated near the tourist office.

 

Shortcut : the path that climbs from the Espace Faune leads very quickly to the tourist office. This path can be slippery in winter.
