In the past almost all the West European Shelducks moulted in the German part of the Wadden Sea, where they have been systematically counted, and reached up to 200,000 birds since the late 1980s.. In the last years about a quarter of the moulting Shelducks in the Wadden Sea shifted from the German to the Dutch part of the Wadden Sea for yet unknown reasons.. In order to conduct a systematic monitoring of the Shelduck, which is a Natura 2000 species, in addition to German counts the presented study recommends trilaterally harmonized counts also in the Wadden Sea in the Netherlands and Denmark, if possible, combined with summer counts of (moulting) Eider..

  • Title: About the Wadden Sea | The Trilateral Cooperation on the Protection of the Wadden Sea
    Descriptive info: The Wadden Sea - World Wide Unique.. The Wadden Sea is located in the South Eastern part of the North Sea.. It stretches from Den Helder in the south western part along the barrier islands of the Dutch coast, the German Bight and the Danish coast to Blåvandshuk in the north eastern part.. The Wadden Sea is the largest unbroken system of intertidal sand and mud flats in the world, with natural processes undisturbed throughout most of the area.. It encompasses a multitude of transitional zones between the land, sea and freshwater environment, and is rich in species specially adapted to the demanding environmental conditions.. It is considered one of the most important areas for migratory birds in the world, and is connected to a network of other key sites for migratory birds.. Its importance is not only in the context of the East Atlantic Flyway but also in the critical role it plays in the conservation of African-Eurasian migratory waterbirds.. In the Wadden Sea up to 6.. 1 million birds can be present at the same time, and an average of 10 to12 million birds pass through it each year.. UNESCO World Heritage Site.. The Wadden Sea has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its outstanding  ...   your own eyes, you can see and experience how landscapes were created in the glacial period.. Visit the Wadden Sea World Heritage Website!.. www.. waddensea-worldheritage.. org.. Wadden Sea Diversity - natural forces and dynamics prevail.. The Wadden Sea has its own exceptional manner of showing how nature, plants and animals continually adapt to the daily changing circumstances on the flats.. Where fresh river water mixes with salty seawater and processes such as tides, wind and deposition of sand and mud still occur, you can find plants and animals that have ingeniously adapted.. Thanks to its many faces, the Wadden Sea offers a tremendous variety of plants and animals a place to grow, live, breed, nurse, grow up, moult or rest.. Wadden Sea Wildlife - unique in its variety.. The wealth of life in the Wadden Sea is phenomenal.. Not only do you find lots of permanent residents, there are also lots of visitors.. Every year, at least 10 to 12 million migrating birds make use of the Wadden region.. Around 10,000 different plants and animals can be found living on land or in water.. Such an enormous variety as found in the Wadden Sea exists nowhere else in the world.. Wadden Sea World Heritage Flyer.. Download.. English,.. German,.. Dutch Flyer..

The signing of the joint.. by Parliamentary State Secretary Ursula Heinen-Esser of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Germany, chair of the Conference; Karen Ellemann, Minister of Environment, Denmark and Gerda Verburg, Minister of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, the Netherlands concluded a very successful and productive Wadden Sea Conference on the Wadden island of Sylt on 18 March 2010.. The Conference was the 11th Trilateral Governmental Conference in the framework of the Dutch-German-Danish cooperation on the protection of the Wadden Sea, the world’s largest tidal barrier island system, since the first Conference in The Hague in 1978.. Signing of the Ministerial Council Declaration on 18 March 2010: Minister Gerda Verburg, State Secretary Ursula Heinen-Esser and Minister Karen Ellemann (from left to right, Photo: Kristine Jung).. A revised.. Wadden Sea Plan.. was adopted.. The 2010 Wadden Sea Plan updates the trilateral policies and management since the first Wadden Sea Plan was adopted at the 8th Conference in Stade in 1997.. The Wadden Sea Plan constitutes the common framework for the protection and sustainable management of the Wadden Sea as an ecological entity.. In addition to agreements to enhance the international cooperation to protect the migratory birds, for which the Wadden Sea is a key site, climate, sea level rise, coastal protection and alien species were high up on the minister’s agenda.. Climate change and its consequences such as enhanced sea level rise, increased temperatures, and increasing sediment deficits will have impacts on the ecology and landscape of the Wadden Sea and may affect the safety of the inhabitants.. It was agreed that there is a further need to strengthen the natural processes of the Wadden Sea in order to cope with such changes and to further cooperate in developing common strategies and enhancing the knowledge.. For invasive species, which is an issue of concern for all parts of the Wadden Sea, a common approach will also be developed in the coming period.. Shipping safety was again on the agenda.. It remains an issue which is of great concern for the region since an accident can have potentially enormous impact, ecologically and economically.. It is of the highest priority that safety is kept on a high level and that everything is done to prevent accidents.. The ministers agreed to a number of actions in this field including to continue to raise the awareness of the significance of the Wadden Sea amongst the maritime sector.. A highlight of the Conference was the signing of the 2010.. Joint Declaration.. on the Protection of the Wadden Sea in a formal signing ceremony at the Kurhaus in Westerland.. The 2010 Joint Declaration replaces the Joint Declaration, signed at the 1982 Wadden Sea Conference in Copenhagen, which had become progressively outdated.. It will not alter the spirit or legal status of the Cooperation.. This will remain a formal (but not legally binding) Cooperation between the governments of the three countries.. In conjunction with the signing of the 2010 Joint Declaration new governance structures will be launched and replace the existing structures.. The Trilateral Wadden Sea Board is the governing body of the Cooperation.. Peter Ilsøe, Denmark, was appointed by the ministers as the first chairman of the Board.. Signing of the 2010 Joint Declaration on the Protection of the Wadden Sea on 17 March 2010: Minister Gerda Verburg, State Secretary Ursula Heinen-Esser and Deputy Director General Helle Pilsgaard (from left to right, Photo: Harald Marencic).. The Sylt Conference introduced a new element into the Wadden Sea Conference.. During the open session of the Conference an interactive discussion with the ministers, stakeholders and guests on “A Vision for the Wadden Sea - Steps to Achievement” was held.. The overall objective for this session was to encourage all participants that they have a part to play in achieving the vision for the Wadden Sea.. The session was  ...   further developed and enhanced their joint cooperation, building upon the Stade Declaration and the Trilateral Wadden Sea Plan.. The main issues discussed at the Conference were shipping safety, World Heritage nomination and stakeholder participation.. They decided.. to submit an application to the IMO for the designation of the Wadden Sea as PSSA (Particularly Sensitive Sea Area).. to establish a national land based monitoring system for ships based on AIS signals, in accordance with the relevant IMO and EU regulations in the Wadden Sea Area by 2005.. to continue the consultations concerning the Word Heritage Site nomination with a view to finalize them within one to two years.. to convene a Trilateral Wadden Sea Forum as a consultation project with participation of all relevant stakeholders..

  • Title: Seal Management | The Trilateral Cooperation on the Protection of the Wadden Sea
    Descriptive info: The Wadden Sea is a habitat for two seal species, the harbour seal and the grey seal.. In the framework of the Trilateral Wadden Sea Cooperation, the conservation and management of the Wadden Sea seal populations is of high importance.. Seal Agreement.. Under the umbrella of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (Bonn Convention) a trilateral Seal Agreement has been concluded between Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands.. The Agreement entered into force in 1991 with the aim to cooperate closely in achieving and maintaining a favourable conservation status for the harbour seal population of the Wadden Sea.. It contains provisions, amongst others, on research and monitoring, taking, protection of habitats and awareness.. Seal Management Plan.. According to Article IV of the Seal Agreement the Parties shall develop, on the basis of scientific knowledge, a conservation and management plan for the harbour seal population.. This plan shall contain a comprehensive statement of actions which are or are to be undertaken by the Parties to achieve the goals of this Agreement.. The Parties shall keep the plan under review and amend it as may be required, taking into consideration, the results of scientific research in particular.. The current.. (SMP), is valid for the period 2012-16.. Since the grey seal population increased significantly in recent years and its requirements in terms of habitat protection are similar to the harbour seal, it has been included in the SMP.. The objectives of the SMP are.. to achieve and maintain a comprehensive conservation and management of both harbour and grey seal populations in the Wadden Sea through common, coordinated measures of the responsible authorities; and.. to achieve and maintain a public understanding and awareness of the Wadden Sea seal populations as an entity and as an integrated part of the ecosystem..

(i) the seal has not been treated with specific groups of medicine to be further specified in the framework of the Conservation and Management Plan for the Seals which will be amended in 1995;.. (ii) the seal does not carry pathogens alien to the wild population;.. (iii) the seal is released as soon as possible but not later than half a year after it has been brought in for rehabilitation;.. (iv) the seal has not been kept in a center where species of animals alien to the Wadden Sea, or marine mammals not resident in the Wadden Sea, are held;.. 3 seals should only be released in the areas where they were found;.. 4 seals shall not be transported between subregions of the Wadden Sea;.. 5 seals held in captivity shall, in principle, not be released into the wild;.. 6 seals born in captivity shall not be released into the wild; exemptions can only be allowed after the approval of the competent authorities..

    Descriptive info: Climate change and enhanced sea level rise may seriously impact the structure, functions and characteristic biodiversity of the Wadden Sea ecosystem, as well as the safety of the inhabitants in the region.. Addressing these impacts as a cross cutting theme is a major challenge for the Trilateral Cooperation.. Trilateral Cooperation relating to the impacts of climate change started in 1998 with the establishment of the trilateral working group CPSL (Coastal Protection and Sea Level Rise).. Between 1998 and 2010, the CPSL - in which experts on coastal protection, nature protection and (as of 2006) spatial planning cooperate - prepared three  ...   CPSL report 1, 2001.. ), best practices to deal with enhanced sea level rise (..
