The Site is a remnant of a vast raised bog which used to cover both sides of the Dutch-German border. It features subatlantic raised bogs in a landscape of dry and wet heaths, swamp forests, peatland and pools within seasonally flooded agricultural land. In 2014 the Site boundary was delineated more accurately and aligned with the Natura 2000 boundary, reducing the area by 18 hectares. The Site is of international importance for various species of wintering geese and endangered species of breeding birds such as the common snipe (Gallinago gallinago) and whinchat (Saxicola rubetra). It plays an important role in groundwater replenishment and climate regulation, acting as a carbon sink. Human activities include tourism and water management. Drainage is the most important threat to the Site’s ecological character; however, hydrological measures have been implemented to promote the natural regeneration of the bog system.
