The Great Fen vision may take generations to achieve, but already there is a great deal happening on the ground.
Visiting today you will find thousands of wildlife species, beautiful landscapes and plenty of events and places to enjoy, including Woodwalton Fen and Holme Fen National Nature Reserves, the Wildlife Trust Countryside Centre and restored areas such as Darlow's Farm and Great Fen Information Point (New Decoy Farm).
From reedbeds to meadows, there are now more than 2140 acres (866 hectares) of land in restoration and 3310 acres (1340 hectares) managed for nature conservation (including the two national nature reserves of Woodwalton Fen and Holme Fen). By the end of 2013 there will be 3750 acres (1519 hectares) managed for nature conservation. We continue to see increasing numbers of wildlife, from breeding barn owls, kestrels, lapwing and snipe at Darlow's Farm, to rare plants and invertebrates found on Summer Standing and Middle Farm.
Working with and supporting over 100 active volunteers, the Great Fen team works with thousands of people each year.
As well as events, the team runs interactive schools programmes for all ages, a range of walks, talks and visits for groups, and many other community projects, including film, photo and audio projects.

It will take some years to achieve these aspects of the Great Fen and the project aims but the planning is already well underway.
