As the International Wadden Sea profiles as an LT&C-Example, we are following how tourism is involved in the further support and development of the World Heritage Site. In this context you may be interested in the new animated film “Wadden Sea World Heritage Site – A unique experience”. The film explains why the Wadden Sea is so special that it is of global importance, and how visitors can experience it in a nature friendly way.
Wilderness? World Heritage Site? In the middle of Europe? Yes! The Danish-Dutch-German- Wadden Sea World Heritage Site is a unique nature area. The coast is not only a popular resting site for migratory birds, but also a favourite holiday destination for North Sea tourists. The new animated film “Wadden Sea World Heritage Seite – A unique experience” explains why the Wadden Sea is so special that it is protected as a National Park and recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and how visitors can experience it in a nature friendly way. In just over 4 minutes and using many colourful pictures, the video – produced by WWF Germany within the framework of the PROWAD project, with financial support from the European Regional Development Fund and Bingo Environmental Lottery – shows in a humorous way things to know about the National Park and Wadden Sea World Heritage Site
Available in German, English, Dutch and Danisch, the film is intended for visitors and potential visitors of the coast. Tourist information offices, landlords, hotels, restaurants and further tourism related businesses are invited to share the film on their websites and offer their guests an entertaining insight into the World Heritage Site right on their doorstep. The film is also suitable for classroom teaching, e.g. when preparing a class trip to the Wadden Sea.
