Discovering the Wadden Sea
Wildes Leben im Watt
rhythmic roar of breaking waves, fresh sea breezes and tangy salt air, it’s no wonder that the Wadden Sea -- part of the North Sea –
is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. On shore and under water, on the tidal wash, on
the dunes and in the air, there is a teeming diversity of life everywhere.
With vivid and lifelike illustrations this nature book introduces readers to the wide variety of Wadden Sea lifeforms and their respective habitats: the tiny North Sea shrimp, the swift Arctic tern, the nimble harbor seal, and countless others.
Many of these creatures can be spotted during a shore hike or while wading in the Wadden. The book tells where and how to look for them
