Grassland for meadow birds Düffel - The Big 5 from the Lower Rhine

Film on the EU LIFE project "Grassland for Meadow Birds

In the border area of the Netherlands and Germany lies the nature reserve Düffel at the Lower Rhine. Only at a second, closer look does the special feature of this old, rural cultural landscape reveal itself: it is home to meadow birds, whose life depends on a very special meadow landscape. They need intact wet meadows and pastures to protect and nurture their chicks. They find this landscape here - but it is threatened.

The nature film shows close-ups of the birds, which have become rare. Thus, they can be seen brooding and handling their young. The film also reports on what meadow birds need to survive and how the preservation of the species can succeed.

After the 30-minute film, project manager Susanne Klostermann of the NABU Lower Rhine Nature Conservation Station will provide information about the current situation and background of the conservation work in the Düffel and answer questions.
