Rescue from sandbank

The story of 7 girls and the 200 horses who were stranded already for days on a sandbank off our northern sea shore.


Do you know where that was exactly, and where they came ashore?

The place were they came ashore was Marrum at the ‘Ferwerderadeels buitendijkspolder’. Even the army came to the rescue of the horses but they also failed!

Ameland on the map is one of the islands that were polluted by the MSC Zoe’s accident. The Friesche Wad is an UNESCO heritage area, especially a bird tidal sanctuary.
