Basically, the LIFE-Nature project followed 3 aims in the Rosenheim Basin Bogs
- Recovery of the natural water balance in dried out peatlands (Renaturation of raised bogs)
- Conservation of the landscape, rich in various culture environments and abundant in life species in its wetmeadows.
This has an essential significance for tourism due to its outstanding countryside.
- Public relationship: The goals of the LIFE-Nature-Project should also be shown in the public. Along stating pure scientific facts, promoting the idea "joy of nature" should play an important role for maintaining an attractive intact environment.
Until 2008, over 100 firewood collectors cleared up to 70 hectares of mainly spruce and birch trees, grown since the drying measures of the raised bogs and which would die anyway during the planned rewetting measures.
