Reason to be cheerful: Denmark gets a new national park today

Today marks the opening of the Kongernes Nordsjælland (Kings of North Zealand) National Park, comprising 5,000sq km of forest and 60sq km of lakes as well as a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

From Lonely Planet’s article:

In uniting these stretches of land as a national park, the natural landscapes, animal life, and rich cultural history will be protected by the state, with the assistance of private landowners.

It was around this time last year that Denmark welcomed its first wolf pack in 200 years. I find it very heartening to see Denmark embracing its environment and wildlife.
