Resumen

Weerribben. 23/05/80. Overijssel; 3,329 ha; 052°47’N 05°55’E. Natura 2000 (SPA, SAC), National Park. The Ramsar Site boundary has been adjusted to the Natura 2000 site, resulting in the addition of an area of 790 ha. The Site is a low-lying peatland formed by bogs, marshland, reedbeds, wet meadows, pools, channels, heathland, and woodland. It is an important breeding area for numerous species of endangered waterbirds including bittern, purple heron and black tern. It also supports notable species of plants, fish and butterflies. European otter have been reintroduced since 2002 and healthy and expanding populations have developed. The Site is part of the catchment area of the river Rhine and it plays an important role in flood regulation and groundwater recharge. Human activities include farming, reed cutting, commercial fisheries, angling and other recreation activities, as well as water management. Potential threats to its ecological character include drainage, eutrophication, pollution and animal disturbance caused by recreational activities. There is a visitors’ centre at the site and biodiversity monitoring activities are carried out by the Dutch Bird Research Organisation. Ramsar Site no. 193. Most recent RIS information: 2013.
