Rewilding the North Sea
Wereld Natuur Fonds-Nederland
The Dogger Bank is the perfect North Sea area to provide sharks and rays with a safe, nutrient-rich habitat. It is a large, shallow sand bank, nearly the size of Belgium, at the heart of the North Sea. However, the area is severely degraded, even though it is designated as a protected nature area under the national laws of the Netherlands, UK and Germany.
WNF aims to turn this area from an industrial area into a safe habitat for sharks and rays. The project will combine lessons learned in active restoration of sharks, rays and oyster reefs as well as in marine protection, legislation and policies
