Period: 2011 to ?

A nature education programme has been developed in cooperation with the Natopia association. Two-hour guided night tours in the Tyrol for adults and school classes give participants an insight into the lives of nocturnal animals and, weather permitting, a look at the starry sky. Information on light pollution and possible mitigation measures are also presented.

Project organisation, project development and funding: Office of the Tyrolean Ombudsman for the Environment, Verein natopia, Naturpark Karwendel, Land Tirol
