<p><span><span><span><span lang="EN"><span>With over more than 10,000 animal and plant species - which are observable 365 days per year - the largest protected area of the Eastern Alps lives up to its name in terms of fauna and flora. Over the years evolution, immigration, and displacement have led to a multi-layered animal world feeling at home in the Hohe Tauern. In addition, we find up to a third of all Austrian plant species in the Hohe Tauern.</span></span><span><span></span></span></span></span></span></p>
