Overview

The Site is one of the largest remaining raised bogs of the Ukrainian Carpathians, and among the few pristine examples with no visible human impacts. It is at the southern end of the border between Ukraine and Poland, and is a part of the Nadsianskyi Regional Landscape Park. This non-forested type of peat bog is extremely rare in the region and is a hotspot for biodiversity. It supports more than 105 animal species, including nine amphibians, four reptiles, approximately 70 birds and 24 mammals. Due to its location in a north-south pass in the Carpathians, the Site plays an important role as a transnational ecological corridor and is extremely important for migrations and dispersions of land animals, and so helps maintain the biodiversity of the region. Human disturbance of the peatbog is fairly limited due to its inaccessibility and its proximity to the border. As of 2019, a management plan was being prepared.
