WETLIFE project

The project aims at reducing "environmental debt" by restoring hydrology in Amalvas and Žuvintas wetland complexes affected by peatland drainage and water level regulation in the lakes; and promoting sustainable farming in Natura 2000 site - Žuvintas biosphere reserve.

Importance of mire protection

Peatlands have a function in the regulation of essential environmental processes and life support systems i.e. in the maintenance of adequate climatic, atmospheric, water, soil, ecological and genetic conditions. They may provide clean water, regulate water flow, recycle elements and affect both local and global climates.
