In the past decades, more than 60% of all meadow birds have disappeared in the Netherlands. Suitable areas (flowery meadows where godwit chickens are safe and they can find sufficient food) have become rare. The Frisian agricultural nature association Oer de Wjuk has taken the initiative to improve the conditions for meadow birds. With the help of a special floating surface pump, shallow meadows are created between Hilaard and Boksum / Deinum so that meadow birds can rest safely and find suficient food. The Off-Grid Factory has delivered the Lorentz solar water pumps for this project. To ensure quiet peace for the birds it was important that the pumps produced little noise, which proved to be a nice sustainable solution. The pumps were installed by our partner HST Energy.
