The Marker Wadden is the largest ecological nature restoration / purification project in Europe, intended to restore nature in, on and around the Markermeer. Natuurmonumenten has created this beautiful nature reserve of islands with spawning grounds and natural banks using sand, clay and silt from the Markermeer. This gives endangered animals and plants living space again. The visitor island is accessible to water sports and nature lovers.
