The Nieuw Land National Park attracts various special animal species. Think, for example, of (yes) flamingos in the wild. Yet only one animal can be the park's icon. Namely; The bald eagle. This large bird of prey, which was hardly ever found in the Netherlands, chose Nieuw Land as the place to be the first to settle and breed again. The bald eagle is adventurous and imposing. The wingspan goes up to 2.5 meters. Nieuw Land is the place to see a sea eagle in the Netherlands. And of course the many other (special) animal species.
