A century of conservation in the Netherlands


This is a video about Dutch national park Dwingelderveld.

According to the Dutch conservation organization Natuurmonumenten, it recently increased the land surface which it owns to over 100,000 hectare.

It reached this milestone by acquiring land for the Grensmaas nature reserve in the southern Netherlands, along the Meuse river.

In 1906, Natuurmonumenten acquired its first property: the Naardermeer.
