Fugleværnsfonden's Bird Sanctuaries

På dansk

Fugleværnsfonden (The Danish Bird Protection Foundation) is a fund under Dansk Ornitologisk Forening (The Danish Ornithological Society) with the purpose of establishing and preserving bird sanctuaries in Denmark. By the end of 2009, 20 sanctuaries totalling 860 hectares are owned or managed by the fund. As the sanctuaries are established for the benefit of the birds, access to most of them is restricted. Watch the birds from public road or trail, or use the observation towers or hides built at some of the sanctuaries (marked with 'T').
