Over a time of 3 years, nature photographer Peter Dettling filmed the very first Swiss wolf pack, wildlife and nature in the Swiss Calanda region. The series ‘Once around the Sun with the Calanda wolves’ has 52 episodes, and publishes a new one every week. Follow his adventures, available in English and Deutsch.
In contrast to the believe that only lowland and city people welcome the wolf, a poll in the Calanda region showed that 70% of the people around the wolf territory supported the return of the wolf. Local support forms the basis for a sustainable coexistence between people and wildlife.
A surprising majority shows tolerance and support for the wild canids, as I found out while talking to many locals.
You will find episode 35 and the previous episodes on Peter Dettling’s Vimeo homepage in English or Deutsch. With a purchased license, you can watch back all episodes at any time. Here you can also keep up to date on the new releases weekly.
