Wadden Sea World Heritage greetings during COVID-19
World Heritage sites are also affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, among them the Wadden Sea. The UNESCO World Heritage Centre has asked us to send a small video greeting and share how we manage during the pandemic. We were more than happy to do so and got representatives from the three Wadden Sea countries AND from three generations to tell the tale.

UNESCO Marine World Heritage and COVID-19 (Part I)
The unprecedented drop in tourism revenues left UNESCO marine World Heritage sites struggling to keep rangers on the payroll, prevent rising illegal activity or continue crucial scientific monitoring. Local communities have seen their income vanish overnight, but some found creative ways to deal with the crisis and prepare for the future, as was shared during a September 2020 online meeting with Marine World Heritage Managers in Asia, the Pacific, Africa and Europe http://whc.unesco.org/en/events/1532/.
