New video clip on the wonders of the Wadden Sea World Heritage published

The Common Wadden Sea Secretariat, with support of the World Heritage Focal Points, the Task Group World Heritage and our partners, has published a new introduction video for the Wadden Sea World Heritage. The 2-minute clip was produced together with the well-known documentary filmmaker Ruben Smit and premiered on the Wadden Sea World Heritage’s Facebook page this Sunday, 4 October. The video presents the Wadden Sea’s Outstanding Universal Value as World Heritage site.

Bernard Baerends, Executive Secretary of the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat: “With astonishing pictures showing the incredible ongoing dynamics of the Wadden Sea ecosystem and its amazing versatility, I am convinced this new video will strike a chord in all of us and at the same time remind us of the essence to continue working together to safeguard this beautiful site!”

The embedded video above, available also in Danish, Dutch and German, may be used by third parties on their websites for non-commercial use in an editorial context. This means the accompanying text should at least include that the Wadden Sea World Heritage is the largest tidal flat system in the world, where natural processes proceed largely undisturbed, extends along the coasts of Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands.

The video file can be requested by institutions with a professional or scientific connection to the Wadden Sea or which pursue didactic goals in terms of environmental education. For this, please contact CWSS at
