Film: Hope for the European Flat Oyster

The German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) has recently published a film about its engagement for the threatened European Flat Oyster and about the current German restoration project RESTORE.
This project brings together researchers from the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) and the BfN Marine Nature Conservation Department in the development and offshore testing of methods for the restoration of European oyster stocks in the German North Sea.
BfN is committed to protect and investigate this rare oyster species since many years, on a national scale as well as on a European scale. Together with AWI, BfN was mainly forcing the foundation of the European Native Oyster Restoration Alliance (NORA), beginning with the workshop in Berlin in 2017.
