The variety and wealth of the plant and animal worlds is linked to forests, marshy meadows and pasture land. Due to its rich ornithofauna Lonjsko polje has been registered among the protected European areas, in accordance with the Ramsar Convention.

Within the Range is the Krapje-Đol ornithological reserve, known for spoonbill nesting grounds of the spoonbill (Platalea leucordia), egrets and other marsh birds, there is also the Rakita nature reserve.

This area is also interesting for its fine examples of old, wooden residential architecture and for a number of indigenous breeds of domestic animals (horses, pigs, hound dogs and the Croatian sheep dog).
