    In the Zillertaler Alps, an area of about 25.000 hectares already a population of about 80 Alpine ibexes are living but within a few day some more will be living here freely.
    5 animals ( 0.3 from Zoo Nurnberg and 1.1 from Alpenzoo Innsbruck ) will be released -fitted with radio-collars- into the area :).
