Slettnes. 06/08/02; Finnmark; 1,230 ha; 71°05'N 028°12'E. Nature Reserve. Treeless coastal meadows with mires and numerous ponds and lakes on the arctic shores of northernmost Norway. A number of "fossil" and elevated shorelines (several kilometers long) characterize the landscape. The site acts as a breeding and resting area for numerous bird species, many of them threatened. Some bird species occur in unusually high densities, with for example colonies of some 300 pairs of Arctic Skua Stercorarius parasiticus. Otter Lutra lutra breeds inside the site. The site is used for research and tourism. The latter may cause some disturbance for breeding birds. A nature trail and information boards exist. Ramsar Site no. 1196. Most recent RIS information: 2012.
