Store Mosse National Park - called the last wilderness of southern Sweden - is a 78,5 km2 large area of bog. The bog is of two types, peat moss or marsh. On the peat moss, heather, dwarf birch, clock heather and many different species of moss grow. In the marshland the water doesn’t just comes from rain from above as in the peat moss, it also get more nutritious streaming water from the surroundings. As a result of that, a rich flora has developed also with some species of rare orchids. The area is a important breeding place for different species of ducks, mallard, gulls and many other birds.
