The subject of protection is a unique peatbog complex at the places abandoned after the former peat extraction with the succession stages of various development degrees. It is a variable system of the peat extraction remnants with the peat layer of various heights. Individual owners were extracting the peat in their long and narrow plots until 50´s of the 20th century. A unique endangered and protected peatbog flora is here represented by the bog pine (Pinus rotundata), Labrador tea (Ledum palustre), bog whortleberry (Vaccinium uliginosum), hare’s-tail cottongrass (Eriophorum vaginatum), cranberry (Oxycoccus palustris), marsh violet (Viola palustris), the round-leaved sundew (Drosera rotundifolia), long-leaf starwort (Stellaria longifolia), meadow starwort (Stellaria palustris) and stiff clubmoss (Lycopodium annotinum). The rarest fauna species living here is the protected moorland clouded yellow (Colias paleano), a glacial relict depending on the bog whortleberry.
