The mud flats were announced part of the UNESCO world heritage in June 2009. It has a unique ecosystem and is protected by many measures in order to preserve it.
These mud flats were created after the last ice age around 7000 years ago. The nature and dynamic of the coast change constantly – so that the currents and passages in the shoreline develop and move. For exactly these reasons, the mud flats should only be explored in the presence of an experienced tour guide.
The climate and conditions within the mud flats change every day – but that hardly bothers all of the plants and animals which constantly adapt to their surroundings. Intelligent animals and plants can be found here in abundance. The mud flats are the natural habitat for many birds who breed and take care of their young as well as for sea lions and their cubs.
The number of species that feel at home in the mud flats is incredible. Alongside the regular inhabitants, many other species come and go as they migrate. Around 10 to 12 million birds migrate across the mud flats each year. Around 10,000 different plant and animal species are at home here as well – whether on land or at sea. A unique variety and quantity of life can be found right here at our coast line.
