Renaturalization of the Eggemoors
Restoring the natural water cycle
Drainage of moors for agricultural or forestry usage results in the release of stored carbon dioxide into the atmosphere - this intensifies the greenhouse effect
Improvements of living conditions for rare animal and plant species
Target plant species: a.a. Sphagnum spec., Eriophorum angustifolium, Drosera rotundifolia
Target bird species: a.a. Lanius excubitor, Saxicola torquata, Anthus pratensis
All the species mentioned above depend on habitats restored and improved by the Life+ project Eggemoors.
Contribution to climate protection
An intact moore can store more than 5 tons of carbon dioxide per hectar per year - by restoring the ecosystem of the Eggemoors our project does contribute significantly to protecting our climate.
