New Wadden Sea World Heritage face masks distributed among partners

Together with partners from the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark as well as graphic designer Wild at Art, the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat has produced the first Wadden Sea World Heritage face masks. The masks show one of the iconic flying five: the oystercatcher.

As the pandemic is not yet overcome, the masks serve as eye catcher and conservation starter on the Wadden Sea World Heritage. The first batch of masks was therefore funded by the Trilateral Wadden Sea Cooperation and distributed among the Cooperation’s countless partners from national parks to visitor centres and multipliers with a sincere thank you for their contribution.

Available in English, Danish, Dutch and German, the masks are made from fair trade cotton and are washable to prevent waste, especially litter in nature. The first batch is considered as trial run. If there is interest to order more – for sale or distribution, partners are invited to get in touch directly with the supplier Wild at Art.

The Trilateral Wadden Sea Cooperation thrives with face-to-face meetings, but for almost a year now these meetings have become nearly impossible.  There are meetings online, but the interpersonal exchange is amiss. With the mask, the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat also wants to show its appreciation to all the partners and multipliers that bring life to the Trilateral Cooperation and ensure the conservation of our shared Wadden Sea World Heritage.
