Resumen

Alde Feanen. 07/01/93; Friesland; 2,124 ha; 53°07'N 005°55'E. Natura 2000 (SPA, SAC); National Park. Alde Feanen is an area of freshwater lakes, reed lands, forested marshland and grasslands which make up one of the few remnants of an extensive peat bog landscape. The boundaries of the Ramsar Site have been adjusted to the boundaries of the Natura 2000 site. It supports rare and endangered species of birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles and butterflies, and notable plants such as the critically endangered bog orchid (Hammarbia paludosa), making it important for maintaining the biological diversity of the Atlantic biogeographic region. Moreover, the Site is an important breeding, staging, moulting and wintering area, supporting more that 20,000 birds and up to 1% of the population of shoveler (Anas clypeata), gadwall (Anas strepera), barnacle goose (Branta leucopsis) and great cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo sinensis). It also plays an important role in flood regulation and groundwater replenishment. As well as water management, the Site is used for farming, commercial fisheries, oil and gas extraction, and recreational activities such as angling and nautical sports. The main threats derive from drainage, pollution and eutrophication caused by farming activities, and habitat disturbance due to tourism. Ramsar Site no. 578. Most recent RIS information: 2013.
