Larch, European spruce, Swiss pine and silver fir, these are the trees you will find in woods on the valley floor. At higher altitudes, first there are alpine meadows, which are carpeted with flowers in spring, and then these give way to rocks and glaciers.
The main animals populating our valley are the Alpine ibex (the Park's symbol – the population numbers around 3,500), the chamois (numbering around 7,000), marmot, fox, lynx, stoat, golden eagle and, in recent years, the lammergeier and wolf.
There are also numerous species of birds: buzzard, woodpecker, titmouse, ptarmigan, Alpine chough, sparrowhawk, goshawk, tawny owl, little owl. In the lakes and torrents there are two species of trout: one native, the brown trout, the other introduced, the salmon trout.
