Bargerveen. 07/01/93; Drenthe; 2082.5 ha; 52°41'N 007°02'E; Natura 2000 (SAC, SPA). The Site is a remnant of a vast raised bog, which used to cover both sides of the Dutch-German border. Currently the area is formed by subatlantic raised bogs in a landscape of dry and wet heaths, swamp forests, peatland and pools within seasonally flooded agricultural land. The Ramsar Site boundary has been amended to follow the Natura 2000 site, with some residential areas excluded. The Site is of international importance for various species of wintering geese and endangered species of breeding birds such as the common snipe (Gallinago gallinago) and whinchat (Saxicola rubetra). It also supports endangered plant species such as bog asphodel, dragonflies such as the bog hawker and butterflies such as the grizzled skipper. The Site plays an important role in groundwater replenishment and climate regulation, acting as a carbon sink. Human activities include tourism and water management. Drainage is the most important threat to the Site’s ecological character; however, hydrological measures have been implemented to promote the natural regeneration of the bog system. Ramsar site no. 581. Most recent RIS information: 2013.
