In 1905, Natuurmonumenten, the Dutch Wildlife Trust, purchased 5 square kilometres of dry, sandy land in central Netherlands and created the countrys largest wildlife preserve.
In 1930 the Netherlands first National Park, Veluwezoom, was created and with the acquisition of additional land, the park has now grown to 500 square kilometres of sand dunes, woodland and heath, all managed as a single nature reserve.
The national park Veluwezoom serves as a protected area for deer, wild boar, foxes, badgers, tree martens and other mammals. The area also naturally harbours insects, reptiles, amphibians and birds, such as bullfinches, woodpeckers, tree-creepers and of course an assortment of birds of prey.
