The Wadden Sea Region is characterised by a powerful interaction between man and nature. This applies both to the islands and to the coastal strip. The people who live there feel bound to the Wadden Sea Region and many make their living in the ecosystem of the tidal flats. The region contains a wide diversity of socio-economic activities. These activities range from fishing, agriculture, leisure and tourism, exploitation of natural resources such as oil and gas, to maintaining sea defences.
