There are several dozens of animals in the Drents-Friese Wold, used to graze the natural terrain. The Drenthe heath sheep for instance, eats branches from the common heather plant and keeps them short.

This sheep saunter within fences, without a shepherd. These animals find their own food. Sheep did not just provide meat and wool, but much-needed fertiliser to promote fertility in the fields. Once again, sheep, as well as some fenced cattle, take care that the heathland is vital, with lots of space for special plants and animals.

One of the largest areas of natural beauty in the Netherlands is National Park Drents-Friese Wold. Over 6000 hectares of forest, heath land, shifting sands and river valley grasslands were designated to become a national park in the year 2000.

The national park Drents-Friese Wold is one of the biggest united conservation areas in the Netherlands. This wide landscape of stretched woods and moors lies on the border of both Dutch provinces Friesland and Drenthe and occupies 6150 hectare of land. The park is very suitable for biking and walking.
