Valuable wetlands but difficult to manage

image of Alkaline fens

Alkaline fens are species rich wetlands that today are threatened. Nature conservation officers and experts of alkaline fens from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden visited alkaline fens in Sweden and Finland to discuss the current situation. Restoration and management can be expensive and there is a need to find more appropriate ways to manage and restore alkaline fens.



Network for conservation officers

This project was started by nature conservation officers who wanted to find out more about how neighbouring countries were working with the management of alkaline fens. This project is the first step in setting up a network for conservation officers in northern Europe who are working with alkaline fens. The meetings in this project have shown the importance of networking, and also showed that a lot of alkaline fen restoration and networking activities are taking place in different countries.
