The garden dormouse, which is active at dusk and at night, has probably the most contrasting coat colouration among the small mammals in our latitudes. It prefers coniferous and mixed forests with rocky ground as its habitat. Little is known about its occurrence in Vorarlberg.
In a citizen science research project, the inatura - Erlebnis Naturschau Dornbirn is therefore searching for the garden dormouse in Vorarlberg together with the apodemus institute.
