Late autumn marks the beginning of the chamois' mating season. Come and observe this crucial and spectacular period, and learn to identify and understand the behaviour of this wild species

We will look for the locations of the chamois herds, where they have gathered for breeding. We will decipher the behaviour of males and females, and understand how territories and herds are conquered, defended or lost. We will identify the behaviour of dominant and submissive males. At the end of this beautiful day, you may have witnessed some spectacular chases and gained an understanding of the social life of the chamois.
