Saba not a winner in the election "Most beautiful nature area of The Netherlands"

The Dutch citizens have elected the Wadden Sea area, the Veluwe and the Dutch dunes as the most beautiful areas of the Netherlands. The professional jury added the Biesbosch delta and Haringvliet as a fourth winner to the three areas chosen by citizens.

In the Dutch TV program “De wereld draait door”, Secretary of State Martijn van Dam announced that almost 90,000 people did cast their vote.

The four winners will each receive up to 300,000 euros from the Ministry of Economic Affairs. With these funds they can make their nature area more accessible and better known. They also get a prominent place in a nationwide campaign to promote the Dutch nature.

Unfortunately, Saba received the fewest votes.

With this election Van Dam hopes to be able to add Dutch nature to the familiar row of national icons such as the tulip, windmills and Amsterdam.

The final results:

The Dutch Wadden Islands 15 135
