"The East Atlantic bird migration route"

Book presentation in cooperation with the Förderverein Nationalpark Boddenlandschaft e.V.

One of the most spectacular and longest migration routes for coastal birds is the "East Atlantic Flyway", on which knots, bar-tailed godwits, brent geese & co. cover up to 16,000 kilometers - twice a year! But what do we actually know about the marathon flights of these birds? How do they manage to achieve such tremendous physical feats? A group of renowned researchers has been working intensively on these questions for decades and has discovered astonishing things about the migration strategies of shorebirds. One thing became increasingly clear: the Wadden Sea on the North Sea coast of the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark is the vital food and energy refueling station and thus the "strategic hub" for millions of shorebirds! Based on this knowledge, an unprecedented joint effort has succeeded in creating a "string of pearls" of necessary protection zones along this entire fascinating migration route. This book not only provides exciting insights into the migration strategies of shorebirds, but also allows an intensive look at the stages of their long journey to the wintering and Arctic breeding grounds. Finally, it also shows what international friendships and the intensive exchange of waders and geese researchers can achieve in the field of nature and species conservation.
