On 16 October 1990, 30 years ago today, the Agreement on the Conservation of Seals in the Wadden Sea, or Wadden Sea Seals Agreement (WSSA), was signed.
9 April 1990 was the founding day of the smallest of the three German Wadden Sea National Parks, the “Nationalpark Hamburgisches Wattenmeer”.
In the framework of the Swimway Vision and Action Programme, the ad-hoc Working Group SWIMWAY and CWSS have now published an overview of existing programmes.
The 2020 spring count of moulting grey seals in the Wadden Sea shows an increase of numbers in comparison to the previous year.
In a collaboration with partners along the East Atlantic Flyway, headed by the UNEP/AEWA Secretariat, the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat released “A Call for Cooperation: Saving the Places Migratory Birds Call Home”.
On 4 June 2020, together with its sister projects FAIR and C5a, Building with Nature organized an online conference “Be adaptive to become resilient”.
The proposed programme will support migratory birds and people living in 13 countries along the flyway against risks of climate related impacts.
