The Bingenheimer Ried is an important marsh and wetland area and an important migration and resting area for migratory birds and winter guests. It is also home to rare breeding birds such as Northern Lapwing, Snipe and Northern Pintail. The reed is also a particularly suitable habitat for Bluethroat, Reed Bunting, Sedge Warbler and Great Reed Warbler and other animals such as amphibians or dragonflies.
