Large Wadden Fund grant for researching underwater nature in Wadden Sea

Press/Media: ResearchAcademic

Description

A bountiful and healthy Wadden Sea is an indispensable link in the life cycles of many migratory birds and fish. This is why the Wadden Fund and the three Wadden provinces – Groningen, Friesland and Noord-Holland – strive for the creation of such a rich Wadden Sea. To this end, the Wadden Fund granted a large subsidy to the ‘Wadden Mozaic’ project (Waddenmozaïek) by Natuurmonumenten, the University of Groningen and the Royal Netherlands Institute for Marine Research (NIOZ) on Friday 23 November 2018. The aim of the project, which received a total of € 6.4 million, is to determine the condition of the underwater nature in the Wadden Sea and to test possible remedial measures.
