nature - How much nature is there in your municipality, and how varied is it?

This is what a new map of Denmark gives an overview of.

Behind the map are researchers from Aarhus University and The Danish Society for Nature Conservation who have looked at the amount, variation and quality of nature types in the country's 98 municipalities and have given each municipality a score on a scale from 0 to 100.

- This is established as a nature capital, which actually tells something about the value of nature in the municipalities, write The Danish Society for Nature Conservation in a press conference.

- It is really fantastic, that now it becomes extremely clear for the municipalities, what their natural diversity looks like, and thus it also becomes to an even higher extent possible for them to work more strategically and concrete to improve it, comments in the statement Nora Skjernaa Hansen, who a is natural science employee at The Danish Society for Nature Conservation.

When you look at the Southeast Jutland area, there is a big distance between the rankings on the list about the municipalities' nature diversity.

The national average is 24 points, and in Jutland Media's publication Skanderborg ranks first with 34 points, while the neighboring municipality Odder is at the bottom with 17 points.

Here you can see your municipality's ranking and score:

Nr. 20 - Skanderborg, 34 points

Nr. 21 - Ikast-Brande, 32 points

Nr. 28 - Fredericia, 29 points

Nr. 35 - Billund, 26 points

Nr. 36 - Horsens, 26 points

Better nature

In the press conference Rasmus Ejrnæs, one of the researchers behind the study, points out, that the municipalities can improve their nature.

- One can make sure to register this nature, which already exists in the municipality, and assure themselves, that the preservation of the old, valuable nature is sufficient. Then it is a good idea to make sure to improve the already existing nature. The last good advice is to create new nature, he says and he emphasizes at the same time, that the municipalities can use the overview to market themselves to tourists or attract Danes, who are planning to settle in the municipality.

Underneath you can see the map, which shows the situation with the richness of nature in the country's 98 municipalities.
