On the way in the Swiss National Park

Park ranger Not Armon Willy

For hours he sits in front of his precision telescope and observes the slopes of the Val Foraz. The job of a national park warden requires a lot of patience - and Not Armon Willy has that. He notes down every deer and chamois he sees. There are about 400 red deer in his sector, 2000 in the whole National Park.
