In Himmerland, there are several protected areas which include nature reserves and Natura 2000-areas. Natura 2000 is a national symbol of a network of protected areas in the EU. The protected areas are made to preserve and protect the different types of nature, animals, and plants, which are rare, threatened, or characteristic for the countries in the EU.
