Wicken Fen has been designated as a:

  • National Nature Reserve
  • Site of Special Scientific Interest under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.
  • Special Area of Conservation under the EU Habitats Directive.
  • Wetland protected under the international Ramsar Convention.

There is no higher recognition of ecological importance. These designations have been principally made on account of the open Fen habitats such as sedge beds, reed communities and Fen meadows. Aquatic habitats such as the dykes and pools are also very important. Dryer grassland and woodland also add diversity to the site but in the case of woodland, its expansion has often been at the expense of more valuable open Fen habitats.
