NNature Park Nakskov Fjord is primarily known for its unique cultural environment, but the fjord is much more than that. It is also an important Natura 2000 area, and large parts are wildlife sanctuaries. Under the common denominator ’Natura 2000’ lies a bird sanctuary, a habitat area and a Ramsar site (internationally recognised wading bird protected area).
All this is because the fjord, based on the European standard, containing large concentrations of resting birds, vulnerable nesting birds and also a number of European endangered habitats.
It is first and foremost the birds that are interesting. Especially in the winter, geese, ducks and other waterfowl by the thousands break for a rest here. We have experienced such dense flocks of birds around the Post boat, that it had to reduce speed.
On and around the fjord live and reproduce a number of endangered and protected frogs and toads. Significant populations are found here in this warm corner of Denmark. Eastern Denmark's largest population of natterjack toads can be found on Albuen.
A number of rare and less common plants can be found in the salt marshes.
Everywhere one comes across habitats which are rare according to European standards. We can protect these, so guests from other European countries can experience them.
