Dutch national park Oostvaardersplassen extended


This video is about a sea eagle nest and other wildlife in Oostvaardersplassen national park.

Soon this month, the wildlife of Oostvaardersplassen national park in the Netherlands will get extra space.

The high fences separating Oostvaardersplassen from the Kotterbos woodland will be removed. First, they will be replaced with low fences, enabling red deer to use the wildlife passage to the other side of the railway. Later, all fences will be removed, enabling konik horses and Heck cattle to go to the Kotterbos as well.

In that forest, they will have more protection if winter will get cold.

The Kotterbos was planned as part of a big wildlife corridor, enabling animals to move all the way from the Oostvaardersplassen to the Veluwe region. However, anti-conservation Dutch government policies stopped that plan. Wardens hope that plans for the big wildlife corridor will revive.

The Oostvaardersplassen is the subject of the succesful new Dutch wildlife film De Nieuwe Wildernis.
