Recroduct ZandpoortIn cooperation with: Province of North-Holland, P.W.N., Waternet (district Amsterdam), Waternet (in kind), National Park South-Kennemerland and Nature Monuments
The Dutch coastal dunes as a whole are of great international importance to both nature and recreation. The ever-growing infrastructure is threatening to isolate nature reserves in general and these coastal dunes in particular. This will have a serious negative effect on the wildlife that live there.
Building a wildlife corridor over the Zandvoortselaan to link the Amsterdam Waterleiding dunes with the National Park South-Kennemerland will connect two nature reserves. Plants and animals will then have a larger habitat which will make it easier for them to survive.
This wildlife corridor is also called a ?recroduct?. A recroduct is a combination of a wildlife corridor and recreational links, such as a footpath, cycle path or bridle path.
The ?recroduct? will also enable cyclists, hikers and horsemen to cross safely. The project involves national and regional networks of cycle paths, foot paths and bridle paths, both North-South as well as between the coast and inland.Beneficiary: Nationaal Park Zuid-KennemerlandEFRO budget: € 3.171.750,--Public budget: € 4.098.525,--Private budget: € 659.101,--Priority: 2.
