The moors and bogs are oases in the cultivated landscape of Central Europe. Nature holds many surprises in a moor: It seems as if some of the most bizarre and colourful members of our native species live in the bog. Plants that eat animals live here and mushrooms that suck the live out of plants. The rutting dance of the Great snipes and the hatching of a great crane chick are just a few of the miracles happening in a moor every season. Today- the European Union is runner-up world champion in setting free hazardous greenhouse gases through the destruction of moors and bogs. The film shows the biodiversity of the often rarely recognized habitat - and it is a quiet appeal: Save and preserve the last intact moors!
