Nice results at the Efteling

We prepared an advisory plan for the Efteling to preserve the flora and fauna of this wooded amusement park. Both the amusement park itself and the bungalow park and golf course were inventoried. Meanwhile, research shows that the solutions and choices made work just fine.


At various locations, nest boxes were hung for blue tits, great tits, nuthatches, nuthatches, flycatchers, collared redstarts, robins, starlings, tawny owls, little owls and kestrels, among others. In addition, bat boxes and squirrel nesting boxes have been installed in the park. The nest boxes are maintained by the Efteling itself.

In late 2016, two kestrel boxes on pole and two owl boxes in trees (in the vicinity of the old owl box that was in dire need of replacement) were installed at Efteling Golf Park.

Years of monitoring

All nest boxes are checked annually by our specialists. In a comprehensive inspection report, the recommendations, areas for improvement and concerns are handed over to the Efteling. Of course, other animal welfare and nature conservation aspects that the specialists encounter during their inspection are also passed on to the Efteling.

The results of the annual nest box check are pleasing. Nest box occupancy averages around 70 percent!
