Why are there bears in Arosa and what does the animal protection organisation FOUR PAWS have to do with it? The Arosa Bear Sanctuary is coming to St. Gallen and will answer these questions and at the same time raise awareness about the sensitive issue of animal protection in combination with tourism. Under the title "The Homecoming of the Bear", the Arosa Bear Sanctuary team will inspire visitors with the fascination of bears and also draw attention to the important concerns of their work as part of a special exhibition on Vadianplatz in St. Gallen.

As very special news, FOUR PAWS and the Arosa Bear Sanctuary team also announce the arrival of two new bears. The bears are expected to arrive in Arosa at exactly the same time as the special exhibition in St. Gallen takes place. Ideally, guests at the Vadianplatz in St. Gallen can expect the latest insider knowledge and maybe even a few pictures of the transport and the bear arrival in Arosa.
