Nature photographer Peter Dettling shows us in the series ‘Once around the Sun with the Calanda wolves’ the highlights of his 3-year long research in the Swiss Calanda region.

In early June, livestock animals return to the summer pastures in the Calanda region. Peter documents the demanding effort of shepherdess Astrid, who guides over 400 sheep up to the Ramuz alm. The alp lies directly within the wolf pack territory, but Astrid has great help to protect the sheep. Read more about Astrid’s work here.

And under the protest of the sheep guarding dogs, I started to descent down the valley to see what else was happening in the Calanda wolf territory.
