National Parksin the Netherlands
Nature is important to all of us. Not just in the ecological sense. We also need natureas a space to relax in and help us find peace. Nature policy in the Netherlands aimsto protect nature and develop it further. But for real nature conservation we need abroader base of support. Not only from the public but also from the authorities,politicians and the industry. It is not enough just to have a set of rules.What is the best way to get this broader base of support? I believe it can only bedone by giving people the opportunity to really experience nature. And this is whatour National Parks are for. There, the effects and motives of our nature policybecomes clear. Nature in our National Parks is protected in a sustainable way, but itis also made accessible to the public. You can enjoy the parks by bicycle or on foot,or you can go boating. The excursions or visitor centres also provide opportunitiesfor learning more about nature.The strength of our National Parks lies in the cooperation between the manyregional parties involved. Obviously, cooperation is not necessary only in theNational Parks, but for the protection of all nature in the Netherlands. I am proud ofthe many places in the Netherlands which give evidence of the positive results of ournature policy. Each National Park represents an important share of the nature we stillhave. They are well worth a visit!Cees VeermanMinister of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality
