“The Wadden Sea National Parks in Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands are located along the German Bight of the North Sea. In Germany and Denmark they also mark the area of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Wadden Sea. Divided from each other by administrative borders, they form a single ecological entity. The purpose of the national parks is the protection of the Wadden Sea ecoregion” (Wikipedia)
LINKING TOURISM & CONSERVATION
LC&T had a conference at Langeness and Hoogin Waddensee. Linking Tourism and Conservation (LT&C) is a shared network designed to develop tools and incentives for replication of best practices and examples of sustainable tourism that supports the establishment and management of national parks and other types of protected areas. LT&C works with individuals, businesses, and governments to strengthen the benefits of both sustainable tourism and area protection and management.
Here are some pictures from the event. Wadden See is well worth a visit.
