Green Lights

Wad Schor

Haven Den Oever

The developments at the Schor are an illustration about how important the Wadden Sea’s ecosystems is and how important it is to keep the dark character of a natural area. In the municipality is updating the facilities in the Waddenhaven, for example installing green lights in the port area. This area is located near the Wadden Sea and Het Schor. Therefore the choice of using green lights in this area. This way, the impact in the form of light pollution on the surrounding areas will be minimized. In the past years funding is realised and the start of installing the Green Lights will be started in 2018. At the moment 15 lights are replaced by green lights. This project is an element of the program ‘Waddenpoort Den Oever’.
