Resumen

Martimoaapa - Lumiaapa - Penikat Mires. 28/05/74; Lapland; 14,086 ha; 65°50'N 025°08'E; Natura 2000 SPA, SCI, Finnish Mire Conservation Programme. An extensive fenland complex with active raised bogs and various types of mires interspersed with small lakes, pools, streams and old forest, characterized by six extensive and well developed aapa mires close to one another. Within these there are also active raised bogs, of which Martimoaapa is among the best developed in Northern Finland. Mires are rich with flarks and ponds and also include two lakes. On lower slopes of the hills Kivalo are various types of alkaline fens and rich wooded meadows with old-growth forests. The eccentric bog of Martimoaapa is one of the most valuable bird-mires in Finland. The location near the coast of the Bothnian Bay increases the importance of the area as a staging place for waterfowl and waders during migration periods as well as an important area for numerous species of breeding water-birds and raptors. Significant values of the mires include scientific research, outdoor recreation, and reindeer husbandry. The site is also used for training by the Finnish Defence Forces, which probably causes some effects on the site, just as the increasing recreational use might have impacts. Ramsar site no. 11. Most recent RIS information: 2005.
