It is true that Flanders is still home to a lot of open spaces. Most regions offer enough natural space for walking, cycling and enjoying the outdoors. But many rare plants and animals need more than just open space and natural environments. The quality of the natural setting can be problematic.
Many plants and animals can no longer survive in our Flemish environment due to problems with dehydration, over-fertilisation, cutting back on spaces, etc. That is why Natuurpunt is dedicated to maintaining large, robust, nature reserves where rare varieties are given adequate space. Natuurpunt is active in almost 500 acquisition projects across Flanders and Brussels.
Dive into the natural world with the cycling or walking guides from Natuurpunt. Here, you will find a wide range of books which set out the most beautiful walking and cycling areas. Ideal if you fancy a trip with your bicycle or a walk in Flanders.
