Mires are unique ecosystems revealing the past and history of changes in vegetations. Mire areas are one of the most significant ecological and areas complexes of nature in the Park. These water reservoirs are the habitat of specific oligotrophic flora.
Boggy and soppy areas were impenetrable by people and protected these habitats for many years against unfavourable anthropogenic changes. Interference in the Słowiński National Park’s boggy areas was begun in 18th c. due to area drainage and continued up to 20th c. The dense grid of tributary ditches had significant impact on functioning of these ecosystems. To restore appropriate conditions for these habitats and preserve their natural heritage SNP implements the “Słowiński National Park’s Wetland Protection” programme.
