Other protected areas

The SNP is still the only national park in Switzerland, and the third smallest in the Alps. Both the SNP and Switzerland have some catching up to do.

Only by working closely together with other protected areas will it be possible to ensure the presence of sufficiently large natural spaces for future generations. Within the network of Swiss and Alpine protected areas the SNP is fully committed to putting its vast know-how to good use, nationally and internationally, in striving to maintain an intact environment.
