Nature Notes from the Veluwe, Holland #01

In 1905, Natuurmonumenten, the Dutch Wildlife Trust, purchased 5 square kilometres of dry, sandy land in the central Netherlands and created the country’s largest wildlife preserve.

In 1930 the Netherlands first National Park, Veluwezoom, was created and with the acquisition of additional land, the park has now grown to 500 square kilometres of sand dunes, woodland and heath, all managed as a single nature reserve.

The national park Veluwezoom serves as a protected area for deer, wild boar, foxes, badgers, tree martens and other mammals. The area also naturally harbours insects, reptiles, amphibians and birds, such as bullfinches, woodpeckers, tree-creepers and of course an assortment of birds of prey.

This video is part #2 of the Veluwe series.

Bureau Waardenburg in the Netherlands reports rare plants discoveries in the Achterhoek, the eastern part of Gelderland province.

48 vascular plant species from the Red List of threatened wildlife were found in recently restored nature reserves near Zieuwent and Lievelde villages. Among these species are purging flax and meadow thistle.

Rare mosses were discovered as well. Including dwarf bladder-moss, a species which had been seen for the last time in the Netherlands in 1850.
