Success story of the day: Limburg Province

Story featured in the Made in Countdown 2010 publication: The Province of Limburg and three Regionale Landschappen (Regional Landscapes) – the NGOs whose mission is to improve the quality of the landscapes, including the nature in the region of Limburg – launched a project in 2008, encouraging every municipality in the Province to adopt an animal or a plant. The Province and the NGOs prepared an action plan for each of the adopted species explaining what should be done to protect them and what measures were needed.

In February 2008, every municipality received a protection plan for its species and was invited to sign the Countdown 2010 Declaration to become a Countdown 2010 partner. All 44 municipalities in the Province of Limburg joined the conservation project, so 44 species were protected.
