Wadden Sea Day 2021: Global Cooperation in a Changing World - Wadden Sea Flyway Initiative


Wilhelmshaven (D)

The 2021 Wadden Sea Day will focus on the achievements of the Wadden Sea Flyway Initiative since it was launched in 2012, its role in international conservation, and the state of bird populations on the East-Atlantic Flyway. Most importantly, views from scientific and conservation projects along the flyway together with future perspectives for the Wadden Sea Flyway Initiative will be discussed.

The designation as World Heritage site by UNESCO is a recognition of the Wadden Sea’s crucial importance and responsibility for the conservation of migratory birds on a global scale. Upon request by UNESCO, the Trilateral Wadden Sea Cooperation (TWSC) aims to strengthen cooperation on management and research activities with States Parties on the African Eurasian Flyways, which play a significant role in conserving migratory species along these flyways.

The Wadden Sea Day is organized by the Lower Saxon Wadden Sea National Park Authority & Common Wadden Sea Secretariat. Due to the pandemic the 2020 Wadden Sea Day had to be cancelled.

Invited are policy-makers, conservation managers, scientists and non-governmental organizations working in the field.
