Rega organises animal transports by helicopter on behalf of mountain farmers wherever no other means of transport can be used.
During the summer months spent in the alpine pastures, cattle, too, are among Rega's «patients». As part of the assistance programme for mountain farmers, Rega recovers injured, trapped or dead livestock from rough terrain and airlifts them to the nearest location that can be reached by an overland vehicle. Rega commissions commercial helicopter transport firms to perform this task on its behalf.
Rega's family patronage treats livestock in the same way as family members.
