Interregional wildlife corridor

First, known wildlife corridors were recorded from existing data at the cantonal level, and potential corridors were detected by GIS and then divided into wildlife corridors of interregional, regional and local interest. Then, the main features of the interregional and regional network system were envisioned throughout Switzerland. Next, the corridors were classified as wildlife corridors of interregional or regional interest based on the importance of the axis on which they are located. The data for the connecting axes and wildlife corridors were detected and processed using GIS by the Swiss Ornithological Institute in Sempach. The corridors of interregional importance and the axes were modified 2012 by the FOEN based on the information of the cantonal hunting agencies.
