New Land

Five years ago a hugely ambitious project began its gradual journey towards completion. The construction of a unique archipelago started, deliberately fashioned for the benefit of nature. This unique blue chip wildlife film shows the development of the islands and how nature starts to take over from the moment the first land appears. Now already over 650 plant and animal species are found on the islands and the abundance of birdlife is beyond believe. This film explores how the map of The Netherlands was changed to successfully increase biodiversity. This is a first for the world!
