Waterloo World Wetlands Day Public Lecture In commemoration of the Ramsar agreement, the Ecohydrology Research Group and Faculty of Science hosted a public lecture featuring Dr. Jos Verhoeven, an expert on the diversity and functioning of wetland ecosystems. The Netherlands is the common delta of three major rivers. Originally a vast expanse of salt marshes, flood plains, swamps and large bogs, the Dutch began to live there on dwelling mounds 2000 years ago. With vast areas of original wetland wilderness, the Dutch have reshaped it into their minutely controlled country, with continuous innovations in ways to control and make use of these lands.

The Great Netherlands Horse Rescue By Chris, Five Star Ranch Staff Writer The biggest horse story that came out of The Netherlands in 2006 was the amazing tale of the Great Netherlands Horse Rescue. A group of about 100 horses were stranded on a small piece of land when the waters rose unexpectedly after a fierce storm. The horses were stranded for three days on a tiny sliver of land. Firemen and animal welfare officers brought the horses food and water to keep up their strength. As wind and icy rain blasted the horses, they huddled together with their rear ends facing the wind. Finally on the third day, the great rescue was made. The video of the...
