The climatic conditions on the south side of the Alps and the differing geological conditions and altitudes favour a wide variety of plant life. To conserve them, we need to protect them and their habitats. The species of plant concerned may neither be picked, cut, dug up, damaged or otherwise interfered with. This applies to the fully and partially protected species of plant defined by the provincial government such as fire lily, edelweiss or gentian.
Animal protection

The nature protection act applicable in South Tyrol and the framework laws on protected areas provide for the general protection of naturally occurring, wild animals. These are the species of animal listed in Appendix IV of the European Habitats Directive and are also those that live in protected areas. Animals may not be captured, destroyed, killed or injured. Eggs, nesting sites, reproduction and resting sites must be left untouched by people. Moreover, it is forbidden to trade in wild animals or to release non-native species.  


Hunting & fishing
Hunting and fishing are regulated by law in South Tyrol. Please contact the responsible institutions for more information on the relevant laws.
Trade in wild animals and plants

The “Convention on international trades in endangered species of fauna and flora” (CITES) regulates the trade in wild animals and plants throughout the EU. You can find out more here if you are interested in this.
