dc.description.abstract
Between 1909 and 1914 a group of Swiss scientists and conservationists managed to designate an area of approximately 14,000 hectares in the Swiss Alps as a national park. This Swiss National Park became one of Europe’s very first national parks. In contrast to the dominant US concept of national parks as tourist destinations, scientific research became the park's hallmark. This concept of conservation with a scientific focus became an important model for the establishment of nature reserves around the world.
