A breeding site for birds and waders in particular as well as a resting place for cranes, whopper and tundra swans, the area is of national importance. The Goldenstedter Heath is home to a relict population of European Tree Frog. The creation of individual ponds appears to be stabilising the population of Hyla in the Lange Lohe area. Sightings of the Moor Frog have been recorded in several locations.
The area is of particular importance as a connecting corridor for various areas protected through the Habitat Directive: The Diepholzer Moor (NAB 14) in the south and the Goldenstedter Moor and Herrenholz in the north. The medium-range objective is the connecting of the Moor Frog populations in the area. Initially, however, the populations of Moor Frog and Hyla need to be stabilised.
