Happy Frog’s first biodiversity project
Rehabilitation of a local natural reserve - protection of the moor
With a geology unique in Western Europe, Turnhouts Vennengebied is a heathland that covers approximately 1,400 hectares in Belgium. The reserve is home to a remarkable concentration of species, including several rare and endangered ones.
Natuurpunt, which manages the reserve, aims to restore the original habitat to its full diversity, which could see Turnhouts Vennengebied become one of the most significant nature reserves in Europe.
Biodiversity is already on the increase at Turnhouts Vennengebied, with work on the fens and wetlands helping to protect frogs and other amphibians – especially the moor frog, that’s so sensitive to climate change we chose it as our emblem.
