Wetlands are among the most endangered ecosystems in the world. These are one of the most dynamically developing communities with a huge variety of species. They stands apart from interest because of the difficulty of management. These areas are used only if they had been drained in the past. The last dry years, however, show that these are areas of great value, not only from a conservation point of view, but especially for its ability to retain water in the landscape and to release it slowly. During the project we want to find wetlands or waterlogged meadows and on a few of them make a one-time intervention to prevent their extinction. It would be preferred endangered and valuable locations.  At selected locations would be at first made professional surveys with a proposal of rescue intervention.  Searching of wetlands will be directed to the northern part of the Beskydy – Morávka river basin and Ostravice.
