The newly granted project Waddentools – Swimway Waddenzee directly derives from the trilateral Swimway Action Programme.
The Wadden Sea Board endorsed a SWIMWAY Action Programme, through which activities will be taken such as the identification of population bottlenecks and the translation of this knowledge into effective management and conservation measures.
The recently published brochure "Wadden Sea Flyway Initiative: Linking the Wadden Sea World Heritage Site with tropical wetlands and the Arctic tundra" gives an overview about results of the flyway monitoring within the Wadden Sea Flyway Initiative.
In 2018-2019, 6,538 individuals were counted in the Danish-Dutch-German Wadden Sea and Helgoland.
A new analysis of the large scale bird count in 33 countries along the East Atlantic Flyway indicates that a large number of bird species using the Wadden Sea are not doing well.
