The Swiss Federal Institute for Forest Snow and Landscape Research (WSL) takes an interest in the use, shaping and protection of near-natural and urban habitats. It seeks to promote the responsible use of the natural landscape and forests, and to enable people to deal with natural hazards judiciously, especially those that arise in mountainous countries. The WSL ranks among the international leaders in its fields of research, and makes its fundamental knowledge available for the formulation of sustainable environmental policies in Switzerland.
