La Maison du bouquetin (The Ibex House)
A portrait of the Lord of the Alps

Its protection, morphology, habitat and its diet throughout seasons, social life, predators and its scientific monitoring in the Belledonne massif are all the different subjects which are presented and developed throughout a wonderful scenology made of movies, games, boards and mountain trips.
