Various Landscape at the Baltic Sea
Diverse blues, shining silvers, restrained greens and above all, a vast summer sky over the Baltic Sea. The landscapes at the Greifswald Bodden are a mirror of the cultural region.
Like a string of pearls around the Greifswald Bodden, the beautiful landscapes with forests, meadows, steep banks and shallow waters are preserved in small nature reserves. 
These areas, such as the island of Oie or the salt grasslands of the Karrendorf meadows, the semi-arid grasslands on the Zicker'schen mountains in the South-East Rügen Biosphere Reserve or the beech forest World Natural Heritage Site on the island of Vilm, are a reflection of the human cultural landscape and its development.
In many of these areas, extensive open land management takes place, often with sheep. Open, sparse land with dry, meagre or even wet meadows has become rare in our intensively used agricultural landscape. However, species such as the cowslip still occur here, whinchats still breed here, swallowtails buzz through the air, thousands of cranes rest here or 500-year-old solitary oaks can be found here.

Animal husbandry, especially sheep husbandry in this landscape, is not an end in itself; it essentially serves to maintain the biotope and thus combines the useful with the beautiful. We want to give this a further value: we will link the wool of old domestic animal breeds such as the space-wool Pomeranian landscape (black) or the Skudden (white) with the cultural asset of the fishing rug.

This form of active landscape design connects, it is thus a contribution to sustainability and a cultural task.
