Amsterdam. Capital of the Netherlands. Where life goes on 24 hours a day. In those crowds you would not expect that there is still room for wild nature. But if you walk through the city, you will be seen by more animal eyes than you see animals.

Amsterdam Wildlife shows the wondrous nature of Amsterdam. Flirting sand martins, foxes fighting, hovering kingfishers, grass snakes sunbathing and floating peregrine falcons. So close, you never saw them.

Martin and Merel

City ecologist Martin Melchers and producer / presenter Merel Westrik guide you through the wonderful world of (wild) animals seen in Amsterdam, that sometimes unexpectedly, have found their home there. They find these animals at the most unusual places in Amsterdam where they have settled.

Martin Melchers and Merel Westrik looking for wild life in Amsterdam. The two have been following and filming flirtatious sand martins, foxes fighting, hovering kingfishers, grass snakes sunbathing, floating peregrine falcons and other wild beasts in Amsterdam, leading to beautiful images and hilarious situations. They encounter foxes between rail and industrial or exotic mussels that have fallen into the IJ via ballast water from the other side of the world and there have managed to survive.

In Amsterdam you would not expect so quickly that there is still room for wild nature. But if you walk through the city, you will be viewed by all kinds of animal eyes. Melchers talks to get all this with great enthusiasm together and makes sport of the animals as well as possible in their environment in the picture. Melchers and producer / presenter Merel Westrik made another movie earlier with the title Harring in the IJ (2009).
