The Recker Moor is one of the best preserved bogs in North Rhine-Westphalia. In the moorland and wet meadows lives a variety of plant and bird species, including many endangered species such as Garganey, Snipe, Black-tailed Godwit, Eurasian Curlew, Western Yellow Wagtail or Whinchat. The extremely rare soft peat moss (Sphagnum molle) is said to be among the nine native peat moss species.
