Life+ "Woodland - Water - Wilderness" - a project to optimize Natura 2000 habitats in the National Park Eifel

While so much of our countryside is farmed or otherwise changed by other human activities, three protected areas of woodland and water habitats are being allowed to revert to natural wilderness. These areas, sites of community importance according to the European Habitats Directive, are located almost entirely in the National Park Eifel, southwest of the Cologne bight.

This website will help you uncover some fascinating facts about the wildlife within the National Park and the complex inter-dependencies and relationships between various woodland and water species.
