Good news for guillemots


This video is called Guillemot (Uria aalge).

The Frisian Front is an area in the North Sea, to the north of the Dutch Frisian islands.

As the waters of the shallow southern North Sea and the deep northern North Sea mingle there, it is a very biodiverse area.

It attracts seabirds, like guillemots.

After their nesting season, from July till November, over 20,000 guillemots stay there.

On 12 September 2014, the Dutch government made the first move to make the Frisian Front a Natura 2000 area, which will mean more conservation measures for the guillemots and other wildlife.
