World Wetlands Day 2006 in Norway


Dokka Delta National Wetlands Centre

Dokka, Norway, 2nd February 2006

World Wetlands Day is celebrated all over the world on the 2nd of February every year.

This year Dokka Delta National Wetlands Centre invited class 5B at Dokka Primary School to the Lands Museum.

The museum's biologist Finn Audun Grøndahl and taxidermist Monica Trondhjem showed the pupils birds from the museum's collection (left), and discussed how they are adapted to wetlands. At the beaver exhibition (above) the pupils also learned how beavers create their own environments, and how these in turn attract other species.
